(Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education)
The aims of PSHCE are to enable the children to
- Develop confidence and responsibility and make the most of their abilities.
- Prepare to play an active role as citizens.
- Develop a healthy, safer lifestyle.
- Develop good relationships and respect the differences between people.
PSHE is taught in discreet lessons as well as underpinning everything we do.
We use a range of teaching styles to engage the children. Teaching starts from and builds upon the children’s current knowledge, understanding, skills, language, experience, concerns and interests. Games, such as co-operative games, circle time games and parachute games are features of some lessons. Use is made of drama, role-play and simulation. Learning methods develop the skills of enquiry, research, discussion, debate and philosophical thinking.
