Our aims for PSHE at GNSA:
PSHE lessons are taught once a week during form time and delivered by the form tutor/class teacher. Our balanced curriculum covers three main areas:
Living in the Wider World
Health & Wellbeing
We follow guidance from the PSHE Association and vary the delivery of lessons including outside speakers, assemblies, debates and role plays. We also recruit a number of students who are supported by training to become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors, Student Parliament members, part of the Road Safety Team and the Youth Travel Ambassadors. Additionally we incorporate our charity provision within the PSHE program working closely with the ‘WE’ charity.
How we promote British Values:
At Guru Nanak Sikh Academy Primary, we develop and promote the fundamental British values throughout our school and within our curriculum. These values are embedded through our school ethos and SHARE values.
Being a Sikh school, a key part of our plan for education is to ensure children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain.
What are the British Values?
The DfE have recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”
- The Rule of Law
- Individual Liberty
- Mutual Respect
- Tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs
As a school, we value and celebrate being part of Britain. This means that we celebrate traditions and customs in the course of the year; for example, Harvest Festival during the Autumn term and a pantomime visit at Christmas. We also value and celebrate national focusses such as Macmillan Coffee Morning, Roald Dahl Day, Sports Day, Chinese New Year and Safer Internet Day, with many more opportunities planned throughout the year to collaborate with the wider community and world e.g. Children In Need.
