Denfield Park Primary School

Learning and Growing Together


PSHE at Denfield Park


PSHE is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy, safe and prepared for life and work. It has an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.


At our school we strive to enable children to develop socially, emotionally, physically and academically and our aim is for the children at Denfield to be kind, considerate, caring respectful and honest, in line with our school values.


We teach PSHE using a range of resources including Pixl, Protective Behaviours, Sesame Street, our whole school values and themed days and weeks across the school. PSHE is taught as far as possible in a cross curricular way, using art, drama and music, discussions, teambuilding activities as well as more traditional approaches such as writing and drawing. Within the Pixl scheme there are different characters and units which are revisited throughout the year in every year group to build upon their knowledge and understanding. We also use the SRE Scheme 'Growing Up with Yasmine and Tom' to deliver a series of flexible, age appropriate lessons to cover topics including the body, relationships, families, friendship, online and offline safety, and puberty.
