PSHE

Intent

 

The National Curriculum states that ‘all schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice.’

 

According to the Education Act 2002 and the Academies Act 2010, the PSHE curriculum should be a balanced and broadly-based curriculum which ‘promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and prepares pupils at the school for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.’

 

Furthermore, it should:

 

  1. Be rooted in the Gospel values of respect, love, truth and justice.
  2. Help pupils develop good social, personal and interpersonal skills that they need to succeed
  3. Enable pupils’ to develop their dignity, self-confidence and self-responsibility and to cultivate their understanding of their own worth by building their self-esteem
  4. Promote the full development of each person who is made in God’s image and uniquely loved by God
  5. Encourage pupils to be healthy, to lead health lifestyles and to become independent and responsible, valuable members of society
  6. Ensure that pupils are developing personally and socially by helping them understand and address the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up
  7. Enable to use their social, personal and inter-personal to build positive relationships with others
  8. Provide opportunities for pupils to develop their awareness of important issues which impact on their own lives and the lives of others
  9. Enable pupils to learn to respect and value diversity and the rich multicultural nature of society 
  10. Help pupils become valuable members of the school community and to prepare them to play an active role as citizens both now and in later life
  11. Be clear and progressive, making relevant links between different areas of the curriculum
