From September 2022 we have adopted the Cornerstone’s Curriculum Maestro platform which supports us to deliver engaging and progressive learning for all of our pupils across our small school of mixed-age classes. Cornerstones does not provide a full PSHE programme that meets the national curriculum entitlement, so we have collated a full programme of study ourselves, based on the PSHE Association’s guidance and using materials from other providers such as Twinkl. As & where appropriate, we are using Cornerstone’s resources to supplement our own materials.
You can see where PSHE fits into our long-term curriculum plan here:
The document below sets out our intended PSHE curriculum throughout the school, agreed during the 2021-2022 academic year.
Our RSE & PSHE policy is below:
This year (2022-2023) we are continuing to split our KS2 class into 3&4 and 5&6 to teach PSHE. We have prioritised resources to allow this in order to ensure that:
a) age-specific content (especially RSE) can be delivered as appropriately as possible, and
b) pupils have ample space to develop their personal, social & emotional wellbeing and resilience as they recover from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
