PSHE (personal, social and health education) and citizenship are planned elements of the whole curriculum that help to give children the knowledge, skills, and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active, responsible citizens in a rapidly changing world. The curriculum helps them to:
- developing confidence and responsibility and make the most of their abilities
- prepare to play an active role as citizens
- develop a healthy, safer lifestyle
- develop good relationships and respect the differences between people.
Through PSHE, we aim to apply the principle of inclusion and equal opportunities; access and entitlement; differentiation and achievement of potential and preparation for the future.
The planned provision for PSHE, SMSC and RSE is part of a whole school approach which includes discrete teaching; teaching through other areas; activities, school, community and church events and worship along with the daily reinforcement of an agreed set of Christian values and expectations.
