Welcome to Farnborough Road Junior SchoolBelonging together, learning together, achieving together


PSHE lead - Lyz Collins

Personal, Social and Health Education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. It helps young people stay healthy and safe, while preparing them to make the most of life and work. PSHE education also helps pupils achieve their academic potential.


In addition to statutory relationships education, pupils will experience a comprehensive programme that covers economic wellbeing, careers and enterprise education, as well as education for personal safety, including assessing and managing risk.


Curriculum Intent

We aim to be an outstanding school at the heart of our local community. We want to create a happy, safe, caring and inclusive learning environment where every child will become an independent learner who achieves their full potential. In partnership with families, we will help pupils to become responsible young people who are on a pathway to success.


Curriculum Implementation

  • PSHE is organised as an element within the formal taught curriculum, the informal curriculum and extra-curricular activities.
  • Each half term, all children will focus on the same topic. These themes will link to assemblies, enhancing the whole school approach.


Autumn Term 1 – Families and friendships

Autumn Term 2 – Respecting others and ourselves

Spring Term 1 – Belonging to a community

Spring Term 2 – Money and work

Summer Term 1 – Physical health and mental wellbeing

Summer Term 2 – Growing and changing


In addition to the learning which takes place in weekly lessons, the following topics will be covered during the mentoring weeks which are held each term. Learning will take place in special assemblies and class-based activities.


Mentoring week topics:

Safe relationships

Media literacy and digital resilience

Keeping safe


Curriculum Impact

We strive for every child to achieve their full potential in PSHE by addressing current experiences and preparing for their future by teaching essential life skills. Our aim is to enable all of our pupils to acquire the qualities and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
