Personal, social and health and citizenship education (PSHCE) helps our children to lead confident, healthy and responsible lives as individuals and members of society. Through work in lesson time and a wide range of activities across and beyond the curriculum, children gain practical knowledge and skills to help them live healthily and deal with the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues they potentially could face in their life. In PSHCE and RE lessons our children will learn about the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and cultures. Our lessons will give children opportunities to reflect on their experiences and how they are developing. It helps them to understand and manage responsibly a wider range of relationships as they mature, and to show respect for the diversity of, and differences between, people. It also develops children's well-being and self-esteem, encouraging belief in their ability to succeed and enabling them to take responsibility for their own learning.

Our PSHCE schemes of work comprise of all aspects of the school's planned provision to promote our children’s personal and social development, including health and well-being. Within this context the school's PSHCE curriculum is underpinned by the general aims of the new National Curriculum and also the guidelines set out by the PSHE Association
