Educating Today's Child For Tomorrow

PSHE Curriculum

In our Federation schools, Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. 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. We provide opportunities to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. PSHE is a vital tool to ensuring that children develop emotionally as well as academically and therefore is held with high regard by all within our inclusive schools. The PSHE curriculum allows children to develop their confidence and self-esteem which in turn allows them to recognise their own worth; whilst also ensuring that our children are well equipped with the skills of collaborative learning. In addition to this we prepare our children to play active roles as citizens within the wider society; allowing them to develop positive relationships and maintain a healthy lifestyle. We hope that through our PSHE education we equip the children with the ability to ask questions; having the confidence to challenge when they think something is wrong. Our Curriculum Aims:

• To nurture resilient, emotionally aware children who are ready to flourish in the world ahead and be able to reach their full potential.

• To be aware of emotional and physical needs of others.

• To be knowledgeable about the laws of the society in which we live and their rights and responsibilities and those of others.

• To be aware of the impact of the choices that they make.
