Today Your Child Learned...

Dear Parent & Guardian, 
We are excited to share that your child has completed the following PSHE lesson. Check out our overview and top tips to support their development...

Today’s PSHE Lesson

The NHS (What  Is The NHS?)

The NHS is one of our biggest employers and is an organisation that many people in the UK are proud of.  Along with the complaints about long waiting lists, hospital cleanliness, staff shortages and the time it takes to get an appointment with a GP, comes an understanding of what life would be like for us if we had no NHS to turn to in times of emergency. This organisation is praised as much as it’s complained about and condemned as much as it’s complimented. The truth is that we rely on the NHS throughout our lives and need to appreciate and support it so it’s around for future generations to use.

What We Covered In The PSHE Lesson

Here’s what we went through today...

  • The NHS is The National Health Service which was formed in 1948 after the Second World War to be ‘a comprehensive, universal and free at the point of delivery service, for people living in the UK’.
  • Some services like medical care, eye tests and glasses are free or discounted for children.
  • That other countries usually ask their citizens to pay for their emergency and medical care after treatment.
  • How our taxes help to fund the NHS.

How You Can Help From Home

Here’s what you can talk about during dinner...

  • Share with your child the names of people that we know who work for the NHS and the jobs that they do.

Go Above & Beyond 

Here are some other ideas to support your childs PSHE lessons...

  • Talk to your child about how other countries usually pay for their medical care and look at whether you and your family use the services that the NHS provide for free like eye tests and hearing tests for children. 
  • Talk about the times when you or your family have used the NHS and why.  
  • Talk about where your nearest NHS hospital, clinic and surgeries are.

When it comes to your child’s development, teachers and parents are better together! By aligning our goals and education techniques, we can better realise our vision of positively preparing your child for their future.

The pupils at our school are really enjoying the lifewise scheme. The scheme is very staff-friendly and easy to monitor. More staff are now teaching lifewise as a consequence and all the DfE statutory guidance (+more) is covered. The staff at lifewise are extremely professional. As it is a digital platform, lessons are constantly being up-dated and improved.

Lifewise is a fantastic tool to use. It is easy and clear to navigate and as well as in class we have used Lifewise during remote learning sessions, whilst in lockdown. I would thoroughly recommend this 'wellbeing session' tool to any school. It is exceptional.

Lifewise was so helpful for my online ELSA sessions. The format gave the children the chance to express their emotions. They loved the quiz and enjoyed the conversation.
