At St. Helen’s Primary School, we believe that personal, social and health education (PSHCE), enables children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We aim to provide children with the tools to understand how they are developing personally and socially and whilst doing so, allowing them to be able to successfully tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
Through PSHCE, we aim to focus on well-being to enable children to embrace change, feel positive about themselves and enjoy healthy, safe, responsible and fulfilled lives.
Through PSHCE, we aim for all learners to:
- Know and understand what constitutes a healthy lifestyle.
- Be aware of safety issues and how to manage risks.
- Understand what makes a good relationship with others.
- Have respect for other people.
- Be independent and responsible members of the School community, demonstrating behaviours adopted in our School Policy.
- Develop self-confidence and self-esteem and make informed choices regarding personal and social issues.
- Develop good relationships with other members of the School and the wider community.
- Gain the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in public life.
- Learn about their rights, responsibilities, duties and freedoms, and about laws, justice and democracy.
- Play an active role in the life of their schools, neighbourhoods, communities and wider society as active citizens.
Engage critically with, and explore, diverse ideas, beliefs, cultures and identities and the fundamental British values we share as citizens in the UK.
