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

Power Of Negotiation (When We Might Use Negotiation)

We learn from an early age that persuasion and negotiation may help when we want something. We also learn that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t! The art of negotiation has to be learned and practised but also knowing when there is room for negotiation or that it’s pointless or inappropriate to try, is also a skill in itself!

What We Covered In The PSHE Lesson

Here’s what we went through today…

  • That negotiation is a dialogue between two or more people with the intention of reaching a beneficial outcome over one or more issues where there is a conflict or disagreement.
  • When and where negotiation might be useful for example, when buying a house, agreeing a time to come home after a party etc.
  • What we need to consider when negotiating with others, tone of voice, respecting feelings, is the negotiation realistic? beliefs, customs and religion.
  • What we might do if our negotiations fail.

How You Can Help From Home

Here’s what you can talk about during dinner…

  • Talk to your child about experiences you’ve had where you’ve had to use negotiating skills.
  • Talk to your child about the times when negotiating hasn’t worked and what you did then.

Go Above & Beyond 

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

  • Discuss whether it’s possible to negotiate everything.
  • Remind your child that sometimes there will be no choice or use of negotiation and sometimes a decision is final.
  • Model how to negotiate fairly, respectfully and appropriately with others to show your child how negotiation is achieved.

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.
