Personal, Social, Health and Emotional Development (PSHE)

Personal, Social, Health and Emotional Development is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. We teach PSHE in 2 week blocks every half term, drawing on good practice. 

PSHE promotes pupils’ personal social and emotional development, as well as their health and well being. It helps to give children the knowledge and skills they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. It also gives children an understanding of the rights and responsibilities that are part of being a good citizen. 

We have developed age appropriate objectives to ensure that the children are receiving a broad and balanced curriculum that equips them to deal with life’s daily challenges. Please take a look at the longterm plan to see what your child will be learning throughout the year in their PSHE lessons. We have split our longterm plan into three core themes: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World (including economic wellbeing and some aspects of careers education). We cover a range of topics within each area and use enrichment opportunities to ensure our pupils are given the knowledge and skills to keep themselves healthy and safe and prepared for life and the world of work.

If you have any questions or would like more advice please don't hesitate to come into school and speak to your child's teacher or the PSHE Lead, Mrs Arnold.
