The intended learning outcomes of teaching Personal, social and health education (PSHE) and citizenship are to enable the children to:
- Understand their rights as listed in the UN Convention on the Rights of Child and appreciate that they also have responsibilities when making choices.
- Know and understand what constitutes a healthy lifestyle;
- Be aware of safety issues;
- Understand what makes for good relationships with others;
- Have respect for others;
- Be independent and responsible members of the school community;
- Be positive and active members of a democratic society;
- 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.
- We encourage all children to play a positive role in the wider life of the school and the community, through the School Council, fundraising events and supporting charities.
We use a mindful approach to the teaching of PSHE using the Jigsaw scheme of work.
We believe that all children should have equality of opportunity and should be able to access the curriculum regardless of race, religion, gender or ability.
Relationships and Health Education are statutory at Primary and parents do not have the right to withdraw their children from these subjects.
