“We do not need magic to change the world; we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already” – JK Rowling
At Wellfield, we believe that Be Spirited (PSHE) is essential, encouraging learners to be happy and active individuals, family members and citizens of the world. By helping children to understand themselves and others, we seek to develop skills that will allow our students to be resilient and to thrive in their future lives.
We want learners to be passionate about their health, future careers and relationships and to be confident and safe in all of their choices. Our curriculum is divided into three sensitively taught strands: Relationships, Living in the Wider World and Health and Wellbeing.
By creating responsible and engaged citizens, we seek to ignite the power that is inside each and every one of our learners already.
In the academic year 2020-2021, there will be an emphasis on mental health and wellbeing post Covid-19. Many lessons throughout the Autumn term (and beyond) will sensitively cover these key themes:
