Why does PSHE matter?
Personal, Social, and Health Education (PSHE) is central to giving pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible British citizens.
PSHE enables children to understand and respect our common humanity: it’s diversity and its differences so that they can go on to form, the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.
Safeguarding is a key element of PSHE as pupils learn about their own identity, risks, decision-making and how to keep themselves safe.
PSHE helps children to learn to recognise their own value, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning. They can 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.
PSHE doesn’t just exist within the curriculum. The wide range of activities and experiences that we offer beyond the curriculum in which children contribute to their school life and community, are a key part of PSHE.
