Our PSHE/RHE subject leader is Mrs Emma Fairley.

At Baddow Hall Infant School our vision is for every child to make the best possible progress.

Intent for our PSHE & RHE Curriculum:

Children’s health and well-being is at the core of everything we do at Baddow Hall Infant school. We aim to deliver a curriculum which allows children to become life-long learners so they can become healthy, independent and confident individuals.

We will support children to develop their resilience by developing their problem solving skills so they can suggest ways to recognise, explain and resolve a range of situations. We support children’s creativity in PSHE by providing them with a range of activities which allow them to explore and discuss experiences they might encounter in their own lives. Through these experiences children will also develop their curiosity by encouraging them to ask questions about their observations and encounters.

EYFS framework- ‘Personal, Social and Emotional Development’ (educational programme):
Children’s personal, social and emotional development (PSED) is crucial for children to lead healthy and happy lives, and is fundamental to their cognitive development. Underpinning their personal development are the important attachments that shape their social world. Strong, warm and supportive relationships with adults enable children to learn how to understand their own feelings and those of others.

National curriculum guidance (purpose of study):
Schools are free to determine how to deliver the content set out in this guidance, in the context of a broad and balanced curriculum. We are determined that the subjects must be deliverable and give schools flexibility to shape their curriculum according to the needs of their pupils and communities. In primary schools, we want the subjects to put in place the key building blocks of healthy, respectful relationships, focusing on family and friendships, in all contexts, including online. This will sit alongside the essential understanding of how to be healthy. Teaching about mental wellbeing is central to these subjects, giving them the knowledge and capability to take care of themselves and receive support if problems arise.
