St John's

Church of England Infant School

A small school with a big heart, a great place to grow.








Our intention is that when children leave St John’s Church of England Infant School, they will do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active, positive and successful role in today’s diverse society. We want our children to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible if they put their mind to it. In an ever– changing world, it is important that they are aware, to an appropriate level, of different factors which will affect their world and that they learn how to deal with these so that they have good mental health and well-being. Our PSHE curriculum develops learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills which will enable children to access the wider curriculum and prepare them to be a global citizen now and in their future roles within a global community. It promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences for later life. Our Relationships scheme of learning enables our children to learn how to be safe, and to understand and develop healthy relationships, both now and in their future lives.



 EYFS - In the Foundation Stage, PSHE and citizenship is taught as an integral part of topic work and is embedded throughout the curriculum. The objectives taught are the Personal, Social and Emotional Development statements from ‘Statutory Guidance for Early Years Foundation Stage and the PSED Early Learning Goals. PSHE in the EYFS is often reactive to situations as they arise, these are important learning opportunities as they are in context to the child’s world.

Key Stage 1 – At Key Stage 1, PSHE is taught through a clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum. We ensure we cover the Health and Well-Being, Relationships and Living in the Wider World Learning Opportunities set out in the PSHE Association’s Programme of Study, which comprehensively cover the statutory Health Education and Relationships Education guidance. Our school values link to British Values, and these values are taught explicitly and celebrated in whole school worships. As with the EYFS, often PHSE lessons in KS1 are in response to situations that our children are experiencing.

We aim to help the children build resilience, independence and confidence; embrace challenge; foster a love of learning; and increase their level of happiness. We do this through the language we use in class, praising children for their efforts, and using language to encourage children to change their way of thinking. This supports both our school and PSHE aims and values.

 Visitors such as emergency services and the school nurse complement our PSHE curriculum to offer additional learning. We encourage our pupils to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

Our whole school worships have links to PSHE, British Values and our school values. They are often responsive to changes and events in the community and wider world, such as, Remembrance, etc.



 By the time our children leave St John’s Infants they will:

 · Be able to approach a range of real-life situations and apply their skills and attributes to help navigate themselves through modern life.

 · Be on their way to becoming healthy, open minded, respectful, socially and morally responsible, active members of society.

 · Appreciate difference and diversity.

 · Recognise and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual respect, Rule of law and Liberty.

 · Be able to understand and manage their emotions.

 · Be able to look after their mental health and well-being.

 · Be able to develop positive, healthy relationship with their peers both now and in the future.

 · Have respect for themselves and others.

 · Have a positive self esteem
