Purpose of study
PSHCE 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 affect their lives and about 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.
Aims and Objectives
We aim for our children to develop appropriate attitudes and behaviour which will continue with them throughout their school and adult lives. This will, in turn, promote meaningful relationships and transitions to realise their personal ambitions in a complex and ever changing world. Our ethos is to learn that success, achievement and fulfilment should go hand in hand with mutual respect and support for one another.
The aims of personal, social and health education and citizenship are to enable children to:
- Know and understand what constitutes a healthy lifestyle
- Be aware of safety issues
- Understand what makes 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
- Reflect on their own feelings, values and beliefs as well as those of others
We follow the scheme of work outlined By Rotherham Healthy Schools and couple this with the SEAL Scheme of work (Social and Emotional Aspects of learning) as well. The whole school access the scheme that is published below.
