At Binley Woods Primary School we have chosen our curriculum to ensure that children not only finish school prepared for the next stage of their education but that they are also developing into well rounded citizens who understand the importance of mental and physical health and well-being as part of their personal development.
Our PSHE curriculum is high quality and is planned to demonstrate progression. We focus on progression of knowledge and skills to support our children and help them to become resilient, confident and independent individuals. Our curriculum and enrichment activities ensure children understand their rights and responsibilities as they grow up. We aim for the children to develop into resilient and respectful young adults, with strong self-belief, who have clear voices which they use to challenge stereotypes and assert themselves as emotionally and morally intelligent members of society.
We measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods:
Children have opportunities for formative (self and peer) assessment in lessons when appropriate
Ongoing assessment of pupil discussions about their learning, which includes use of key vocabulary.
Images / photos of the children’s practical learning.
Interviewing the pupils about their learning (pupil voice).
We recognise that not all PSHE work will be recorded formally in books so discussion with teachers is an important part of monitoring the impact the curriculum has on the children
Termly summative teacher assessments along with formative self and peer assessment opportunities for the children in lessons
Annual reporting of standards across the curriculum.
Monitoring by the subject leader, for example through a portfolio review with children.
