PSHE is led by Jane

PSHE is an important and necessary part of the broad and balanced curriculum offered at Ben Jonson and which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils. It is taught weekly across the school in all year groups.  Through a range of engaging and age-appropriate lessons, activities, games and stories, children are equipped with a sound understanding of risk and how to make informed decisions, reflecting the needs of the school and the community it serves.   These lessons prepare children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. 

We have made use of the concept of a spiral curriculum, revisiting themes relevant to development at different stages with varied complexity and depth. The broad areas we have chosen to include are:

Anti-bullying Drugs, alcohol and tobacco education
Economic wellbeing and financial capability
Emotional wellbeing and mental health
Healthy lifestyles, including the importance of exercise and a healthy diet
Relationships, health and sex education, Safety, including physical and on-line safety

The lessons are grouped under 6 main themes which change every half-term:

  • Being in My World
  • Celebrating Difference (which incorporates Anti-bullying Week)
  • Dreams and Goals
  • Healthy Me
  • Relationships and Changing Me 


 Latest News/Useful Information:
