Our school uses the Talking Points scheme of work to deliver the statutory PSHE lessons. This uses picture books as a starting point to get children talking about their own health and mental wellbeing as well as addressing other issues such as managing money and understanding democracy. Its aim is to develop children’s understanding of themselves, their emotions and how to deal with others. It also teaches children how to stay safe in many situations and who to speak to if they are ever worried or concerned.

  • The scheme is aimed at being flexible and can constantly be updated with new books and schemes to reflect the changing emphasis in education e.g. the importance of understanding protected characteristics.
  • Staff promote a safe environment in which pupils feel comfortable to discuss trickier topics through the use of storytelling.
  • Due to the repetitive, visual nature of the scheme, its Talking Points and strands, pupils have the opportunity to revisit key learning points both within and across year groups and key stages from EYFS through to Yr6 ensuring key knowledge is embedded, remembered and applied.
  • All year groups have: a set of books, online links, PPT slides for each session, annual overview, breakdown of teacher notes and a class floor book.
  • The use of choice activities ensures each session offers an activity for all learners including those with SEND.
  • The scheme of work aims to prepare and help pupils navigate their emotions, relationships, and sense of self both within school situation and beyond.
  • By the end of their primary education, pupils will have learnt about caring friendships, respectful relationships, online relationships and being safe. Talking points covers these areas each year increasing in complexity and reinforcing previous learning.
