Personal. Social and Health Education - PSHE
Our PSHE education gives pupils the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. It gives children the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need to stay healthy and safe, develop worthwhile relationships, respect differences, develop independence and responsibility, and make the most of their own abilities and those of others. When taught well, PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.
The three core areas through which all aims are taught are: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World (including British Values, Citizenship, Economic Wellbeing and aspects of Careers education).
The Relationships and Health and Wellbeing (RHE) sections of PSHE education is now compulsory in primary schools. Please see our Relationships and Health policy for more details and the govermentment guidance for PSHE (links below)
In the EYFS, PSHE is taught throughout the whole curriculum and in circle time sessions. It is also taught through specific events and activities, such as charity events as well as through other subjects.
There are also teaching opportunities during collective worship e.g. stories and discussion, Star of the Week Assembly. The whole school ethos and values promotes our work in PSHE and Citizenship, as set out in our Mission Statement and home-school agreement.
