PSHE classes are a fixture of the curriculum across all year groups.
The syllabus allows us to engage the children in a wide range of social and psychological issues and we often structure this around our weekly themes.
The themes work in tandem with our core Values and with significant calendar events. So one week it might be Courage or Discovery, another it could be Remembrance Day, and so on.
The purpose of PSHE is to help our pupils acquire the knowledge, understanding, skills, and strategies required to live healthy, safe, productive, capable and balanced lives. Children learn to reflect on and clarify their own attitudes, exploring the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter.
Developing empathy and the ability to work with others helps pupils to form and maintain good relationships - essential skills for future employability and a happy, fulfilled life.
