At The Mease Federation, our PSHE scheme of work aims to give children the knowledge, skills and attitudes that they need to effectively navigate the complexities of life ion the 21st Century. The curriculum covers key areas which will support children to make informed choices now and in the future around their health, safety, wellbeing, relationships and financial matters and will support them in becoming individuals and active members of society.
Using the Kapow Primary PSHE scheme of work covers the Relationships and Health Education statutory guidance including the non-statutory sex education.
The PSHE scheme of work is a whole school approach:
- Building relationships
- Managing self
Key Stage 1 and 2:
- Families and relationships
- Health and wellbeing
- Safety and the changing body
- Economic wellbeing
Each area is revisited to allow children to build on prior learning.
The Kapow scheme supports the requirements of the Equality Act through direct teaching, for example learning about different families, the negative effect of stereotypes and celebrating differences.
There are meaningful opportunities for cross-curricular learning, in particular with Computing for online safety and Science for growing, nutrition, teeth, diet and lifestyle. The scheme provides consistent messages throughout the age ranges including how and where to access help.
Each lesson within the scheme features assessment guidance, helping teachers identify whether pupils have met, exceeded or failed to meet the desired learning intentions for that lesson.
Each unit of lessons comes with an assessment quiz and knowledge catcher. The quiz contains 10 questions, nine of which are multiple-choice and can be used either at the end or at both the start and end to help measure progress and identify gaps in learning. The knowledge catchers list some of the lesson titles in mind-map or table format and can be used at the start of a unit to see what the children already know and to inform planning, and then pupils can revisit the same version of the knowledge catcher at the end of the unit to add what else they now know, further demonstrating progression in learning.
One taught the full scheme, children will have met the objectives set out within the Relationships and Health Education statutory guidance and can utilise their learning within their daily lives, from dealing with friendship issues to resilience to making healthy choices and knowing where and how to get help if needed.
