Personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) Vision

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) and Citizenship helps to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active, responsible citizens. Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of their school and communities. In doing so, they learn to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning. They reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social, and cultural issues that are part of growing up. Pupils also find out about the main political and social institutions that effect their lives and their responsibilities, rights and duties as individuals and members of communities. They learn to understand and respect our common humanity, diversity, and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.

We aim to give our pupils opportunities to:

  • take and share responsibility
  • feel positive about themselves
  • take part in discussions
  • make real choices and decisions
  • meet and talk to people
  • develop relationships through work and play
  • consider social and moral dilemmas
  • ask for help
  • find information and advice
  • prepare for change

We do this because we believe in the fundamental value of these experiences.

We aim to help pupils be:

  • confident
  • aware of their strengths and their weaknesses
  • successful, life-long learners, able to ask the right questions
  • knowledgeable, responsible, and compassionate citizens

 The Framework for PSHE

 The knowledge, skills and understanding is taught in four interrelated sections:

  1. Developing confidence and responsibility and making the most of pupils' abilities
  2. Preparing to play an active role as citizens (Living in the Wider World)
  3. Developing a healthy, safer lifestyle (Health and Wellbeing)
  4. Developing good relationships and respecting the differences between people (Relationships- RSE) 

The Framework for Citizenship

This comprises of three interrelated strands:

  1. Social and moral responsibility
  2. Community involvement
  3. Political literacy
