As a Church of England school, we ensure that the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development is at the heart of our school community and curriculum. 

Every child at Shipley CE is valued for their uniqueness and our PSHE education helps our children to understand and celebrate diversity within their school community and the wider world. Our PSHE curriculum ensures that our children are given opportunities to develop their academic, emotional, spiritual, and moral potential, which will enable them to become healthy, independent, and responsible members of society. It tackles many of the critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities that our children will face as they grow up, preparing them for life and work in modern Britain. We also support our children in learning about their rights and responsibilities through the British Values. We enhance learning in PSHE through embedding quality literature into PSHE lessons, school trips, visitors and workshops and participation in national events such as Anti-Bullying Week, NSPCC Stay Safe Campaign and E-Safety Week.

We believe that learners who are emotionally healthy achieve more within school; our PSHE education helps them to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their self-worth and ability to learn. Our PSHE education also helps our learners to develop skills and aptitudes - like teamwork, communication, and resilience - that are crucial in navigating the challenges and opportunities of the modern world.

Intent, Implementation and Impact

Long Term Plan

Here is our PSHE long term plan in which children develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy, safe and prepared for life and work. Our spiral curriculum enables our children to revisit our key areas of learning (relationships, health and well-being and living in the wider world) throughout their school career, with each encounter increasing in complexity and reinforcing previous learning.

Progression in PSHE

Enhancing the PSHE Curriculum

At Shipley, we enhance the PSHE curriculum through participating in national campaigns such as Anti-Bullying Week and NSPCC Stay Safe Speak Out. We also regularly invite visitors into school to support children's learning. This includes regular visits from members of our local community including our PCSO and visitors from a number of charities and organisations such as SCARF, Bradford Road Safety Team and the Canal and River Trust. We also enrich our curriculum through using quality literature to promote discussion and understanding. The following document shows the texts that we use in each year group to support learning:

British and Universal Values

At Shipley CE Primary, we use The Linking Network to develop an understanding of British and universal values. We deliver age appropriate, meaningful understanding of the themes of democracy, individual liberty, rule of law and mutual respect. Evidence of the British Values can also be seen through the school ethos and wider curriculum.
