Developing self-aware children who can manage their own feelings

The purpose of PSHE is to develop children’s social, emotional and behavioural skills which proactively promote emotional health and well-being. PSHE educates the whole child to become a balanced, self-aware, empathic, socially adept individual and citizen. 

Teaching is based around the idea of protective learning, encouraging children to make sensible decisions based upon positive self-esteem and the awareness of their connections to the world around them.

PSHE lessons encourage and teach pupils to appropriately enquire, question, discuss, evaluate, share, challenge and debate. Learning is made accessible and fun using a variety of teaching methods and activities. Pair and group work is used frequently as is drama and role play. Where subject material is sensitive, special care is made to ensure children can access what they need to know without embarrassment.
