PERSONAL, SOCIAL & HEALTH EDUCATION (PSHE) STATEMENT OF INTENT
‘I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.’
We intend to provide a whole school PSHE curriculum that builds foundations of health and wellbeing, providing crucial skills and positive attitudes to enable children to achieve their best potential, academically and socially. We want our children to develop and deepen their personal, social, emotional development in ways that are tailored to their age group, whilst also expanding on their previous knowledge as they progress through the school.
Our intention is for our children to learn about themselves as developing individuals and as members of their communities, building on their own experiences and experiences of others, and through our Christian values.
We want to provide a safe space for the children to learn PSHE, providing them with the ability to make safe and informed choices, taking responsibility for their actions, respecting and valuing difference and being the best that they can be. Children will learn to show acceptance of others regardless of their background, religion, race, gender or sexuality, and develop their understanding of others as we are ‘All God’s Children’. As they progress further up the school into upper KS2 we want to provide effective sex and relationships education, to enable the children to make responsible and well-informed decisions about their lives, to help and support them through their physical, emotional and moral development. It is our aim to help our pupils to learn to respect themselves and others and move with confidence from childhood through adolescence into adulthood.
