PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education)
Personal, social and health education helps to give the children the knowledge, skills and understanding to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. It purpose is to help promote good behaviour and effective learning through self-awareness, managing feelings, motivation, empathy and social skills.

We believe that this enables children to become healthier, more independent and more responsible members of society. as such, we encourage our children to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community. In so doing we help develop their sense of self-worth and help them to learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse and multicultural society.
 
We use a range of teaching and learning styles, we emphasise active learning by including the children in discussions, investigations and problem-solving activities. xxxxxxxxxxxxxx  We also encourage the children to take part in a range of tasks that promote active citizenship, for example charity fundraising or the planning of special school events.
 
Alongside this, classes are organised in such a way that pupils are able, through discussion, to set agreed classroom rules of behaviour, and resolve any conflicts. While visiting speakers, such as health workers and local clergy, take part in discussions with the children about their role in creating a positive and supportive local community.

Through this we aim to:
 
  • Promote a positive sense of the self
  • Promote good relationships with others
  • Promote good attitudes towards others and an understanding of differences between people and their viewpoints
  • Provide opportunities to share and explore life experiences/ emotions/ difficulties in groupings beyond the family
  • Equip pupils with the skills and attitudes to engage successfully in the task of learning
  • Encourage reflection about beliefs choices and values
  • Promote a healthy and safe lifestyle
  • Provide opportunities, responsibilities and experiences that will prepare pupils for the adult world
