Our children are at the heart of Marshland and our vision is to help them understand and value how to fit into and how to contribute to both school life and the wider world. Within our Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) curriculum there is a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing both mental and physical health. Lessons also include mindfulness; allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.
At Marshland we provide a curriculum that includes topics that offer progressive learning experiences that build on previous learning from Foundation 1 through to Year 6. Each half terms’ new topic begins with a launch assembly. This underpins the learning intention for that term. Each weekly lesson is built upon a Charter which forms the foundation for PSHE lessons. This lays the expectations for behaviour and respect throughout school. Half termly topics are titled;
• Being Me in My World
• Celebrating Differences (including anti-bullying)
• Dreams and Goals
• Healthy Me
• Changing Me (including Relationships and Sex Education)
