Personal, social and health education (PSHE) helps to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. The kinds of questions that might come up in PSHE include: What acts indicate kindness? Why do we have to eat vegetables? Why do large items sometimes cost less than smaller ones?
It is here that your child will learn about bullying, citizenship, drug education, healthy eating, physical activity, mental and emotional health, wellbeing, and sex and relationships.
Learning opportunities take place in specific lessons as well as in assemblies, tutorial programmes, circle time, special school projects and other activities that enrich pupils' experiences.
