Lifelong Learners

PHSE Progression Map

At Pot Kiln it is our intent that our children will be ‘lifelong learners’ and we ensure we develop the knowledge, skills and attributes needed for our children to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in a modern world. We encourage our children to be the very best versions of themselves that they can be.

At Pot Kiln Primary School our PSHE curriculum encourages our children to develop responsibility and foster self-esteem in a happy and caring atmosphere of mutual respect that reflects our school.

Our PSHE curriculum strongly promotes positive mental health and wellbeing and provides an environment of trust and support in which our children can share, develop and grow.

PSHE at Pot Kiln Primary School develops our children’s understanding of the ever changing world they live in and their place in it. We support our children in developing the skills necessary to effectively manage their own lives and play an active role in their communities.

We believe that a strong PSHE education is important to help our pupils develop into well-rounded members of society, who can make a positive contribution to their community. The curriculum helps our children aspire to achieve their personal best in every aspect of school life and be the person they want to be.


At Pot Kiln Primary School, we believe that relationship, sex and health education (RSHE) enables our children to become healthy, safe, independent and responsible members of society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We are dedicated to ensuring that Pot Kiln Primary School is a happy, stimulating and caring place and we expect high standards of behaviour and good manners throughout the school. Behaviour and attitude to learning is underpinned by values and learning dispositions, making these integral to the success of the whole school. RSHE is at the heart of our school ethos.

We encourage our children to take part in a range of practical roles and activities that promote active citizenship: school councillor, junior library assistants, whole school and house team fundraising plus engagement in school and local events. Children have opportunities to meet and work with members of the community, such as: health workers, firefighters, police officers, librarians, sports coaches, secondary school pupils, artists, authors, community groups, representatives from the local church and wider community. We participate in, and promote national events such as Comic Relief, Anti-Bullying Week and Children in Need.

We are committed to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of all pupils at Pot Kiln Primary School and strategies that support this are our outdoor learning and Forest School provision, nurture small group support and the use of Thrive, alongside quality teaching and learning about awareness and management of mental health through the RSHE curriculum.

RSHE is taught as both explicit lessons, using our scheme of work, and is also embedded in other areas of the curriculum, enrichment activities and the day-to-day life of the school. RSHE planning and implementation is shared with our local secondary schools.
