PSHE

Personal, social, heath and economic education (PSHE) and Citizenship give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens. We recognise that it plays a central part in the life of our school and should be at the heart of whole school development.

The children will:

  • Develop the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active, responsible citizens
  • Take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of our school and communities – learning to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning
  • Reflect on their experiences, and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up
  • Find out about the main political and social institutions that affect their lives and about their responsibilities, rights and duties as individuals and members of communities. They learn to understand, respect and appreciate our common humanity, diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning
  • Appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse and multi-cultural society
