Personal, Social, Health Education
At Hungerford we strongly believe in educating the whole child and have created a bespoke PSHE curriculum aimed at helping to build life-long habits by nurturing children to become responsible and caring citizens within their community.
Children in years 1-6 carry out a weekly Question of the Week which promotes enquiry at a deeper level through the exploration of ideas giving children the confidence to share their opinions on a range of topics to grow in understanding of personal and ethical issues of the world around them.
We believe that mental health and well-being plays a huge role in the successes of our pupils. Children flourish where staff provide opportunities to develop the strengths and coping skills that underpin resilience. MyHappyMind is a scheme to promote a culture in which children build resilience, self-esteem, and character.
The 5 units covered are:
- Meet Your Brain
How does my brain work and how do I look after it?
What are my unique character strengths and how can I celebrate them?
Why does gratitude matter and how do I develop this as a habit?
How do I build positive relationships and why do they matter?
How do I set meaningful goals that matter to me and keep resilient in times of challenge?
