This is an important area of our curriculum which aims to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead healthy lives and be responsible citizens. It forms an integral part of a child’s development, and is brought into our cross-curricular activities and discussions in such a way as to ensure that knowledge and understanding of oneself and others is developed.
PSHE is also time-tabled as a discrete subject following a scheme of work to cover all strands of PSHE. The pupils grow more confident about aspects of their own lives, their self-esteem, their health, their beliefs, their relationships with others, and their ability to express their feelings and to cope with life’s problems. We encourage pupils to participate in these discussions and activities, which lead to a greater awareness of their social and moral responsibilities.
Strands covered are:
- Drugs and Alcohol
- Financial Capability and Citizenship
- Health and Wellbeing
- Healthy Lifestyles
- Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
- Staying Safe
