The Bay CE School


PSHE at The Bay


Personal, Health, Social and Economic education promotes healthy and well balanced children. We aim to equip the children with the skills that they need to lead a healthy and happy life and to achieve their best.


Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives now and in the future. Children are growing up in a world that has many challenges and risks but also opportunities and they need to be able to manage their personal, social and academic lives in a positive way.  A growing body of research shows that pupils who are emotionally healthy do better at school. PSHE education helps children and young people to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn. The new statutory relationships education teaches the fundamental building blocks of positive relationships with a particular focus on friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other children and adults. The Education Act 2002 requires all schools to teach a curriculum that is "broadly based, balanced and meets the needs of pupils". Schools must "promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and prepare pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life".  We aim to help our children and young people to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn, such as anxiety and unhealthy relationships. Our curriculum also helps pupils to develop skills and aptitudes - like teamwork, communication, and resilience - that are crucial to navigating the challenges and opportunities of the world.


At The Bay, we use the SCARF scheme as the basis for our PSHE teaching. These lessons also cover the Relationships and Health Education that is now statutory. SCARF is a whole school approach to PSHE aiming to improve children’s wellbeing and progress based on the core values of Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship.  The lessons are split into 6 main areas-Me and my relationships, Valuing our differences, Rights and responsibilities, Being my best, Keeping myself safe and Growing and changing. Each week the children have time timetabled for PSHE and skills are developed from reception through to year 6. Topics revisited with age appropriate content. Lessons are interactive and fun. The SCARF lessons show progression through the school building on previous lessons and work. This curriculum will be enhanced by focus week such as healthy eating and careers. 


The impact will be shown through the achievements of the children and their overall wellbeing. We will use some of the SCARF assessments to see progress and progression across the school. The ability of the children to deal with day-to-day life and make those important decisions informed by the information they gain from the curriculum will show positive outcomes from their learning.

This morning, 3RD took part in a SCARF PSHE online workshop. We learnt about the things we need (food, water, oxygen, sleep, exercise and hygiene) in order to keep us healthy. We looked at a range of healthy and unhealthy items and discussed which may be beneficial for us. We also learnt about the different food groups and explored different scenarios linked to keeping healthy. We ended of the session by learning a health RAP which the children thoroughly enjoyed! We all had an amazing time!

Year 4 have been learning about well being in PSHE, as well as how we are all unique. They designed their own hotel that had something for everyone with a range of facilities and activities including: fitness, arts, reading, a restaurant, as well as comfortable rooms away from the noisy entertainment area! We think they'd make a fantastic holiday destination!

Anti-bullying week 14th-18th November

We started Anti-bullying week by wearing our odd socks to show we are all unique and to celebrate our individuality, then each year group completed some activities to learn more about bullying.

Year 6 looked at some of the reasons behind bullying and how differences can often be the root cause of it. We discussed how religion is one of the big differences in people across the world and how it can upset the harmony between different groups. We linked this to some recent work we have been completing in RE around icons. We looked at Sikh icons and symbols and created some artwork to show this. Following this we compared our Sikh icons with Christian ones. We looked at the similarities and differences between them and discussed how building our knowledge of differences makes us more accepting of them. 

In Year 1, we acted out some scenarios where someone was unkind and the children identified ways to resolve the issue. They used speech and thought bubbles to annotate their work.

In Reception, we watched and listened to the Anti- bullying  song with Andy and talked about how we are all  different and unique and we should be proud of ourselves for being who we are!

In Year 3, we started by watching a video linking to what anti bullying week is. Following on from this, we then had class discussions linking to bullying and how everyone is different. Then  the children then had the opportunity to design their own pair of odd socks to symbolise how everyone is different! 

In Year 4 we discussed the differences between being unkind, teasing and bullying. We thought about how someone might feel pressured into bulling someone else and where the pressure might come from in different scenarios. We role played these scenarios in class. 

We created our own odd socks for a display outside our classroom. This shows how we are all unique and individual but come together as a class.
