Here at St Paul’s Church of England Primary School, personal, social and health education (PSHE) enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society.
AT THE HEART OF OUR PSHE CURRICULUM ISBecome healthy, independent and responsible
Through delivering well-planned PSHE lessons the children will develop a toolkit of skills which will equip them with an understanding of risk; along with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions. We aim to help the children to understand how they are developing personally and socially, support them to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. The children are provided with opportunities to learn about rights, responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and importantly the wider community.
AT ST PAUL'S WE BELIEVE THAT PSHEPlays a vital part of primary education
At St Paul’s we believe that PSHE plays a vital part of primary education and needs to be taught weekly through dedicated lessons, class and whole school assemblies and occasionally in small groups. As a teaching staff we understand the importance and purpose of PSHE education is to build on the children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural curiosity is stimulated, challenged and nurtured. PSHE is integral to the development of our children’s values in order for them to become a positive citizen in a forever changing world.
We follow the national curriculums statutory guidance on: citizenship, financial education, personal safety, drug education, sex and relationship education (SRE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.
