PSHE (Personal, Social, Heath & Economic)

 

PSHE or personal, social, health and education, is a planned programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives and personal well-being (UNCRC Article 24).

 

As part of a whole school approach, PSHE develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. We promote a deeper understanding of the UN convention and ensure that children and adults in school uphold and appreciate the rights of all children. Our curriculum prepares children to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up in such rapidly changing and challenging times. It also helps them to connect and apply the knowledge and understanding they develop in all subjects to practical, real-life situations, helping them to feel safe and secure enough to fulfil their academic potential.

 

We actively promote British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs to prepare our pupils for life in modern day Britain. Our citizenship lessons enable our pupils to understand the British democratic process and how to effect peaceful changes in society. Children are supported to understand financial issues through Moneysense workshops. All our year groups have timetabled PSHE time but we encourage a cross-curricular approach to the development of PSHE skills and understanding. Circle time is used to listen to others and to be heard with the help of peers. Pupils learn about similarities and differences between people and cultures through participating in a variety of cultural events over the year. We promote an understanding of healthy living, enabling children to develop good eating habits, an awareness of harmful substances and know the importance of exercise. The Jigsaw programme is used as planning guidance by teachers. National guidance is followed in the teaching and learning of Relationships and Sex Education (see separate RSE policy).
