Work in PSHE is designed to provide pupils with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their full potential as individuals and within the community.
At Thames Ditton Junior School we deliver our PSHE & C through a structured programme called ‘Go Givers’. It delivers the National Curriculum objectives and links very closely with a popular Government initiate called SEAL. For more information on this programme please visit: www.gogivers.org
Please see our anti-bullying policy which is part of our ongoing commitment of ensuring that all pupils are aware of the different types of bullying and enabling them with the skills required to help prevent bullying at TDJS.
Class teachers and staff members who deliver whole school assemblies also build a variety of skills into daily activities, which enable pupils to
• Have a sense of purpose
• Value self and others
• Form relationships
• Make and act upon informed decisions
• Communicate effectively
• Work with others
• Respond to challenge
• Be an active partner in their own learning
• Become healthy and fulfilled individuals
Initiatives such as School Council, the Eco committee and the Year 6 Buddy Scheme encourage pupils to take an active part in the life and strategic direction of the school, and to feel that they have both a voice in school and a contribution to make to the welfare of themselves and their peers.
