Purpose of Study
Personal, Social and Health Education and Citizenship enables pupils to develop the knowledge and understanding, skills, attitudes and values which are necessary for them to make sense of the responsibilities, opportunities and experiences which are part of their lives both now and in the future.
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.
The aims of Personal, Social and Health Education and Citizenship are to enable the children to
- Stay as healthy as possible
- Learn to keep themselves and others safe
- Develop effective and satisfactory relationships
- Learn to respect the differences between people
- Be independent and responsible members of the school community
- 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.

Responses to PSHE parent Questionnaire
As part of your child’s education at Anston Park Junior School, we promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Education (PSHE) curriculum. PSHE education is the curriculum subject that gives children the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live safe, healthy, productive lives and meet their full potential. The Department for Education has made is statutory for all schools to teach PSHE from September 2020.
We asked for your opinions on our PSHE curriculum via a questionnaire. We would like to thank all parents/carers who took the time to respond to the questionnaire and offering suggestions on what they would like to see taught. Please see the responses below.
Relationships and Health Education
The new Relationship and Sex Education guidance came into force in September 2020. You cannot withdraw your child from Relationships Education because it is important that all children receive this content, covering topics such as friendships and how to stay safe. Below is a helpful guide for parents.

We took part in Anti Bullying Week. Here are some photos of our outcomes.
