PSHE & Citizenship 2020-09-12T14:37:52+00:00

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:

  1. Meet Your Brain

How does my brain work and how do I look after it?

  1. Celebrate

What are my unique character strengths and how can I celebrate them?

  1. Appreciate

Why does gratitude matter and how do I develop this as a habit?

  1. Relate

How do I build positive relationships and why do they matter?

  1. Engage

How do I set meaningful goals that matter to me and keep resilient in times of challenge?
