Statement of Intent
PSHE helps young people embrace change, feel positive about who they are and enjoy healthy, safe, responsible and fulfilled lives.
Through active learning opportunities in PSHE pupils are helped to:
- recognise and manage risk
- take increasing responsibility for themselves, their choices and behaviours
- make positive contributions to their families, schools and communities
- recognise, develop and communicate their qualities, skills and attitudes
- build knowledge, confidence and self-esteem and make the most of their abilities.
The curriculum is designed develop knowledge and skills that are progressive and transferable.
Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum. Through the planned curriculum, they explore similarities and differences between people and discuss social and moral dilemmas, they learn to deal with challenges and accommodate diversity in all its forms. Teachers identify the key knowledge and skills of each topic and consideration has been given to ensure progression across topics and across year groups.
Cross curricular outcomes in PSHE are specifically planned for, with strong links between PSHE , literacy and religious education.
