Subject Intent

The intent of our PSHE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and ensures that every pupil will know more, remember more and understand more about being a positive and successful part of our diverse society, both as a child and as an adult. It aims to help them understand how they are developing physically, personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. The importance of health and wellbeing is emphasised in the PSHE curriculum in order to develop lifelong, healthy choices.  

Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.  The curriculum combined with a wealth of wider opportunities, equips all our pupils with the knowledge and skills to maximise every positive opportunity they will encounter and also gives them the strategies to manage the challenging situations too.    

It is our aim that every child leaves Woodfield Primary with knowledge and skills, combined with confidence, a strong sense of self awareness and an acceptance of personal responsibility, all of which are needed in order to thrive in our dynamic and exciting world.
