'Our Curriculum Promise'
At Bishop Martin we promise to provide a PSHE Curriculum that reflects the needs of our children. We aim to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all, and that will maximise the outcomes for every child, so that they know more, remember more and understand more. PSHE is embedded in all that we do to enable our children to become independent, responsible, healthy and confident members of society.
Our PSHE curriculum aims to support the development of the ‘whole child’, by helping them to understand how they are developing personally and socially as well as promoting their social, mental and physical development. Children will be able to develop the ability to tackle the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. Through our discreet lessons as well as wider cross curricular approach to teaching PSHE, children are taught how to keep themselves safe, physically and emotionally resulting in the acquisition of knowledge and skills, which enables children to access the wider curriculum. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. We believe that our curriculum will equip our pupils with the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare them for life, helping them to really know and value who they truly are and to understand how they relate to others and to make safe and informed decisions in this ever-changing world.
