At The Saint’s Academies, the PSHE programme of study brings together citizenship with personal well-being through a values-based education. It is intended to support the school in developing a coherent whole-school approach to personal, social, health and economic well-being (PSHE).
It provides a context for school to fulfil our responsibilities to:
- Promote the physical, social and emotional well-being of pupils;
- Provides sex and relationships education;
- Promote community cohesion;
- Achieve the aims of the whole curriculum.
See the SRE policy for further details of how we meet this responsibility.
PSHE also provides school with an opportunity to focus on the delivery of social and emotional aspects of learning.
Throughout PSHE, we endeavour to foster the notions of responsibility and empowerment to promote a sense of achievement and to enhance self-confidence. PSHE education is guided by our Christian values of:
PSHE is an integral part of the school’s curriculum, as relationships are built when individuals feel valued and respected. Every child should have the opportunity, whilst in our care, to develop to their full potential as individuals, as class members and later as citizens within the community. We need to prepare children to cope with the physical and emotional challenges of growing up and encourage them to develop a considerate and caring attitude to each other and to society
