The curriculum for PSHE has a particular focus each term. The lessons are broken down into key themes, behaviours and knowledge to ensure progression throughout the school. Lessons are taught weekly in each year group and in whole school assemblies, rich texts are used to explore different themes throughout the school.
KiVa - Anti-Bullying Programme
We teach pupils how to be a good friend, being responsible, understanding what a bully is and how to support the victim. The curriculum is mapped to ensure progression so that all pupils know and understand how to be ‘KiVa’ and what the KiVa rules are.
Go-givers - exploring the fundamental challenges facing children and society today.
We teach pupils about being themselves in the wider world and about their responsibility to be a good citizen, this includes covering:
- Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) learning including the teaching of fundamental British values
- Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE) including Relationships Education

No Outsiders—Teaching the Equality Act in Primary Schools by:
Teaching and exploring different identities and exploring diversity as a whole. The curriculum is mapped sensitively and is underpinned by rich texts that cover all aspects of differences in our world. We adopt the principle that no one is an outsider and that everyone is welcome at Havannah Primary School.
Christopher Winter Project— Relationships and Sex Education
The project builds on learning from previous years and revisits topics each year to cover them in greater depth. It includes lesson material on topics such as keeping clean, families, gender differences, personal space, puberty and relationships.
MyHappyMind is a programme used here at Havannah Primary School to promote a culture of resilience, self-esteem and individual character. Throughout, children are encouraged to explore themselves as a unique individual (personality, strengthen their relationships with friends and family, managing their own emotions and celebrate their milestones and achievements).
MyHappyMind is taught across five modules and each introduces a new set of content and habits to help children build resilience, self-esteem and confidence.
The Five Modules:
