Our Curriculum


Personal, Social, Health and Economics Education (PSHE) and Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) at Great Bradfords Junior School

“If a thing is humanly possible, consider it within your reach.”

Marcus Aurelius

At Great Bradfords Junior school, we teach PSHE and RSHE with an integrated approach, in a holistic, progressive scheme of work, giving children relevant learning experiences to help them navigate their world and to develop positive relationships with themselves and others. With strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health, our curriculum properly equips our teachers to deliver engaging and relevant PSHE within a whole-school approach. It embodies a positive philosophy and creative teaching and learning activities, to nurture children’s development as compassionate and well-rounded human beings. Throughout the curriculum, we provide opportunities for children to develop their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.

Additionally, our intention is to provide all the children we educate with an inherent understanding of risk and the knowledge and skills necessary to: make safe and informed decisions; recognise healthy relationships; be able to ask for help from appropriate sources; display empathy, respect and tolerance towards others, particularly those whose characteristics are protected under the Equality Act 2010; understand how to live a healthy life including in an online world; be able to administer basic first aid and contact the emergency services and to understand the physical and emotional changes the body undertakes when growing up.

At the heart of our integrated PSHE curriculum is our school Code of Conduct - Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Responsible - with our ultimate aim being to nurture our pupils, so they grow together into kind, safe, responsible young people who will showcase our intrinsic positive values and ethics in their everyday lives. Our Superhero Learning Values (perseverance, resilience, independence, engagement and enthusiasm) also underscore all facets of our PSHE and RSHE curriculum.
