The Barton Hill Academy PSHE Curriculum is designed to give every pupil the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keepPSHE widget themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work. Research suggests that well-delivered PSHE programmes have a positive impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly those who are categorised as disadvantaged or vulnerable.

Our PSHE curriculum aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, teamworking and critical thinking in the context of six core themes: Being me in my World; Celebrating Differences; Dreams and Goals; Healthy Me; Relationships and Changing Me. It brings together pupil learning promote their understanding of safeguarding, British Values, the Rights Respecting Charter, and Spiritual Moral Social and Cultural Learning (SMSC)

Adopting the ‘Jigsaw Approach’, intertwining it with the school’s own emotional make-up and personal needs has led to the development of our own Barton hill Academy Curriculum.

Our curriculum refers to important events, relevant to Bristol, Britain and the wider world to promote and engage children’s understanding of equality and diversity locally, nationally and globally. This enables our pupils to celebrate both their similarities and differences, creating trusting, positive relationships with their peers, teachers, parents and the community.
