This page provides prospective parents and visitors with a glimpse into our Ivybridge Curriculum.
Ivybridge parents are also given termly planners outlining the learning opportunities provided in each year group every term.
Detailed knowledge organisers are also available on request.
At Ivybridge we teach a Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education (PSHE) curriculum that focuses on developing the knowledge, skills and attributes to keep children healthy, safe and to prepare them for life and work.
The quality PSHE that not only is taught but embedded in our ethos at Ivybridge, ensures children are given wide perspectives to the diverse society that we live in today.
Pupils develop fully as:
- individuals as they focus on their own personal development; believing in themselves, building resilience, developing habits to lead a healthy life.
- members of families and social communities; understanding how to relate to others and adopt teamwork skills.
- Members of economic communities; developing their awareness of the part that they play and how to live responsibly.
Links will be made between pupils’ health and wellbeing, and their academic progress. We know the value of focusing on promoting positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement will impact their whole education.
At Ivybridge we believe that PSHE plays a vital part of primary education and needs to be taught at least weekly. This enables staff to ensure full coverage of PSHE) is taught in their year group. There are always occasions where teachers may feel it necessary to teach PSHE as a result of an issue arisen in their own class. PSHE is integral to the development of children values in order for them to become a positive citizen in a forever changing community.
