At Even Swindon Primary School, we are articulate and informed citizens!

We believe that our teaching of PSHE & SRE gives children the essential knowledge, skills and experiences they need to have a successful and happy future in their everyday lives.

We have carefully designed our PSHE curriculum to 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. Pupils are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

We strive to inspire our pupils’ to gain the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their potential as individuals and within the community. Using given opportunities to reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up: understand and respect our common humanity; diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning. Children will become prepared for puberty and have an understanding of sexual development and the importance of health and hygiene. Children will develop feelings of self-respect, confidence and empathy. By inspiring our pupils to grow in this way, they will become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society who understand how they are developing personally and socially, and have the confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.



We believe high quality learning in PSHE has been achieved when pupils can understand the importance of PSHE/RSE, RE, SMSC and British Values and the effect they can have on life in and out of school. We believe that the meaningful PSHE curriculum is the key to children becoming confident, tolerant and well-rounded adults.

We hope that through our consistent, engaging and pupil focused approach that children can approach a range of real-life situations and apply their skills and attributes to help navigate themselves successfully through modern life after they leave Even Swindon Primary School. This will be evident through engagement in lessons and assemblies, talking enthusiastically about the subject, making sensible and informed choices and talking about ways their skills can be applied.  

The impact of our PSHE curriculum will be overseen by the subject leader through learning walks, team teaching, book looks, pupil and staff voice, planning feedback, and ongoing data analysis.
