Personal, Social and Health Education
Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)
PSHE is very important to us here at Kingmoor Nursery and Infant School and forms a big part of the everyday developments children make in and around school.
Each class has also has timetabled sessions for PHSE each week. These take a variety of forms such as circle time, drama or discussion.
As part of this we have engaged with initiatives such as KidSafe which is a specialised child protection / safeguarding programme for children and young people from Early Years Foundation Stage through to High School.
We are a KidSafe registered school and our KidSafe tutor is Mrs Hodgson.
We deliver the programme to Year 1/2 children each year, with 'age-appropriate messages being taught through songs, games, actions, puppetry and group discussions'.
The primary purpose of the programme is 'to equip participating children with effective skills to keep themselves safe from the various forms of child abuse without shattering their innocence'.
The programme teaches children about how to deal with some of the following issues: bullying, access to age-appropriate DVDs/video games, internet safety and keeping their bodies safe.
Coming soon we also have an exciting new programme called 'Jigsaw'
Jigsaw PSHE brings together Personal, Social, Health and Economic education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a lesson-a-week programme.
