The aim at Thrybergh Fullerton is to provide opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident, resilient and successful lifelong learners. Our pupils will understand how to make and manage positive relationships both in person and online, how to lead a healthy lifestyle and manage their finances. They will be given opportunities to make a positive contribution to their local communities and to develop their cultural capital.
Through the implementation of a broad and balanced curriculum, we aim for our children to have high aspirations and to make an active and positive contribution to their school, their community and wider society, now and in the future. We want our children to be equipped with the skills and knowledge to be able to keep safe and healthy, both mentally and physically.
PSHE curriculum in intended to prepare children for their future lives in equipping them with the skills and knowledge to be competitive in the future job market and to make sure that they are always safe. Children will learn to value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever changing world.
We intend for the children at Fullerton to leave us feeling confident, to make healthy life choices, lead a positive life, and where they can, make active contributions to their communities and wider world.
Our PSHE curriculum is a 'spiral curriculum' where concepts are regularly revisited to ensure that meaningful connections are made.
The children are taught the same units each year through the Jigsaw scheme of work, where prior learning is used as a foundation for new learning which is subsequently well developed.
Prior learning is referenced throughout the scheme of work and children become very familiar with the content and structure.

F2 met the Jigsaw family

PC Paul visits Y5 and Y6
PC Paul came to talk to the children about Water Safety. After the increased deaths of young people within the local area, South Yorkshire Police have highlighted this to be a highly important topic.
PSHE / RE
During their RE lessons, Y6 wrote their own songs and poems about global problems and issues. A lot of these issues we have discussed in PSHE and helped the children with this activity.
The World - Reece
Look what's happening to the world, it isn't right,
People at war, hear them fight.
See the sky so dark,
effects the creep up like a hawk.
People don't have clean water,
they are having to barter.
Raise your Voices - Charla and Flo
What's happening I don't know?
Why's everybody using this new slang now?
Trees are breaking does that matter?
Why's everybody having a natter?
Rape, racism, raise your voices,
because yes you still have choices.
Homophobia and transphobia,
What have we become?
Pollution is the new solution,
we need a new solution.
Please stop this nightmare now,
it's not fairy tale anymore.
People - Riley
Look at the world, look what we've done.
People struggling to breathe from the effects of pollution,
we need to find the perfect solution.
People using guns all the time,
This has become a major crime.
People littering in the street,
after they eat.
People saying racist words,
is getting on my nerves!
The Earth - Alex
What have we done to the Earth?
This isn't what they deserve.
Animals leaping, people screaming,
don't give up, keep on dreaming.
Pollution, smoke, dust, wires,
wars, rape, murders and fires.
PC Paul visits F2
F2 had a visit from PC Paul to learn about 'Super Heroes and People Who help Us.' They discussed how the police and emergency services can help. Some of the children had the chance to dress as a police officer!
