PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education)
STATEMENT OF INTENT
Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education, which includes Sex and Relationships Education (SRE), is a subject through which pupils develop the transferable knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe; to make informed decisions, to manage their lives both now and in the future and achieve their Personal Best.
The aim for PSHE education is to provide all pupils with:
Accurate, balanced and relevant knowledge
Opportunities to turn that knowledge into personal understanding
Opportunities to explore, clarify and if necessary, challenge their own and others’ values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities.
The skills, language and strategies they need in order to live healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced lives
Opportunities to develop positive personal attributes including respect, communication, trust, resilience, honesty, responsibility, problem solving, reflection and curiosity
The programme of study is based upon three core themes within which there is broad overlap and flexibility. These are:
Core 1 – Health and Wellbeing
Core 2 – Relationships
Core 3 – Living in the Wider World
