PSHE

PSHE stands for Personal, Social and Health Education. It is a vital part of national curriculum learning.

 

PSHE helps to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead responsible, confident, healthy and independent lives. It equips them with important social skills - such as resilience, empathy, self awareness and self confidence - and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.

 

It is during weekly PSHE sessions that the children learn about bullying, citizenship, drug education, healthy lifestyles, mental and emotional wellbeing and relationships.

 

Learning opportunities take place in weekly 'circles' as well as in assemblies, special school projects and other activities that enrich children's experiences. All PSHE themes are discussed at an age-appropriate level and in line with national curriculum guidance. Parents will be advised by letter when the more sensitive subjects - such as sex education - are to be covered.
