PSHE

PSHE is taught throughout the school and is considered to be a really important subject at Harris Primary Academy Orpington.

PSHE sessions offer classes the opportunity to discuss issues such as bullying, British values and current issues being discussed in the news and society in general.

At Harris Primary Academy Orpington we promote ‘British Values’ through our spiritual, moral, social and cultural education which permeates through the curriculum offer and supports the development of the ‘whole child’.

We recognise that such development is most successful when those values and attitudes are promoted by all the staff and provide a model of behaviour for our pupils.

‘British Values’ have been identified as:

Democracy;

Rule of Law;

Individual Liberty;

Mutual Respect;

Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs:

At Harris Primary Academy Orpington we serve a multi-faith community where each person is respected and valued equally without regard to ability, gender, faith, heritage or race.

Pupils are encouraged to experience British Culture through our curriculum themes.  Schools take part in local and Harris Federation sporting activities which help to instill ‘fair play’ and engender a ’team spirit’.

The staff work closely with parents, carers and other professionals to ensure that the pupils are happy, well cared for and enabled to learn the skills they need to live a fulfilling life as part of their community

Our Pupil Learning Council will use class circle times to listen to the views of their peers and feed that into PLC meetings. They also feedback the outcomes of PLC meetings to their classes.

We welcome many visitors into our school to support our PSHE teaching- the London Fire Brigade, Metropolitan Police, London Transport, Child line and the school nurse will be regular visitors.

We have a weekly P4C assembly http://www.philosophy4children.co.uk/  which is an enquiry based approach to open up children’s learning through the exploration of ideas.

P4C benefits for children

  • Gives children the possibility of seeing that their ideas have value, and that others have different ideas that have value too.
  • They realise that they don’t always have to be right.
  • They have the confidence to ask questions and learn through discussion.
  • All learners have opportunities to genuinely enquire.
  • A chance to speak and be heard without fear of getting an answer wrong.
  • Gives children who are not considered “academic” a voice and a chance to flourish.
  • Gives the “academic” children a chance to think outside the box.
