“Pupils have been taught specific skills to help them manage any potential difficulties with relationships.” – Ofsted 2018
At Clapham Terrace Primary School, through our PSHE programme, we equip our pupils with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves safe and healthy whilst preparing them for life in modern Britain.
PSHE forms a large part of our curriculum; not only do children receive a discrete weekly PSHE lesson, Mrs Clarskson and Mrs Ashcroft also deliver weekly assemblies based on aspects of PSHE. In addition, PSHE takes place across the curriculum, from promoting healthy eating in Design & Technology, to debating human rights in literacy and the effect of drugs in science.
Class Dojo is a positive behaviour management system that aims to praise children who show a range of good learning behaviours and choices. Rewards are not based on academics but for a positive attitude. School can choose which and how many learning behaviours they want to focus on. Our learning behaviours are:
- Active learners
- Collaborative learners
- Creative learners
- Independent learners
- Persistent learners
- Resilient learners
Dojo points are awarded to a child who has demonstrated on the key learning skills. Skills can range from working together to showing resilience and a can do mentality in the face of a challenge.
Dojo points cannot be rescinded and are purely positive and in the moment – they should be used to encourage who may not be making the best choice to change their attitude and have a go.
When a child earns 5 Dojo points then they are awarded a housepoint, when a class earns 300 Dojo points they are rewarded with 5 minutes extra play.
The class with the most Dojo points at the end of the week will be rewarded with a certificate in Celebration Assembly.
We are committed to ensuring that all children feel safe. One of the ways we ensure this is possible is through our Protective Behaviours curriculum in the autumn term, which looks at personal safety, self-esteem, resilience and confidence.
“Parents and pupils say that the school is a safe place.” – Ofsted 2018
We actively encourage all of our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through school councils and committees, pupil leadership, fundraising events and involvement in community projects.
Please see our PSHE progression map to see what children will be covering in their PSHE lessons.
