Learning Together

PSHE Curriculum Map

At Mellor St. Mary's we base our P.S.H.E. curriculum on the Question-based Model from the Programme Builders planned through the national P.S.H.E. Association.  This corresponds with our broader curriculum, which is also based around questions, to promote thinking skills, problem-solving and growth mindset attitudes to learning.

The Question-based Model is supported by dynamic resources which are constantly updated by the P.S.H.E. Association, drawing on their own expertise and the work of local authorities around the country, such as Medway. In addition, as a school we use 1Decision resources, providing super video scenarios which are carefully matched to the coverage required by the National Curriculum, and which the children can directly relate to through their own life experience.

As well as the topics outlined below in the curriculum grid, class teachers cover issues as they arise in school to meet the needs of the children in their care.  Examples of this include meeting the children's needs on returning to school after Covid restictions were lifted, dealing with specific issues around friendship in upper KS2,  and helping all children with transission into their new classes at the beginning of the school year.

Question-based Model Overview

The above content is delivered in discrete year group cohorts throughout school, to ensure that all lessons and activites are age-appropriate and deliver continuity of coverage. In this way, all our children can benefit from our school's P.S.H.E. education.
