Personal, social and health education (PSHE) helps to give children and young people the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
Our PSHE education, including statutory Relationships and Health education, and non-statutory sex education, as recommended by the DfE, provides a framework though which key skills, attributes and knowledge can be developed and applied. This framework promotes positive behaviour, good mental health and wellbeing and resilience and achievement. It helps children to stay safe online, develop healthy and safe relationships, make sense of media messages, challenge extreme views and have the skills and attributes to negotiate and assert themselves now and in the future.
Our PSHE provision supports the school’s aims of developing confident citizens and successful learners who are creative, resourceful and able to identify and solve problems. The social and emotional development of pupils is embedded throughout the entire school’s curriculum and culture. The school has a powerful planned thematic PSHE program, built around a spiral curriculum of recurring themes. We use the Coram Life Education programme SCARF for our PSHE learning.
We are always happy to discuss your child’s learning journey through PSHE with you at any time and below are some link you may find useful.
