Through PSHE, our pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work. Our well-delivered PSHE programme aims to have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
Our Programme of Study for PSHE education aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, teamworking and critical thinking in the context of three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education).
The national curriculum also states that ‘all schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice'. Our PSHE curriculum contributes to our school's statutory duties outlined in the Education Act 2002 and the Academies Act 2010 to provide a balanced and broadly-based curriculum and is essential to support our children's personal development, behaviour, welfare and safeguarding.
