Personal, social, health and economic education is an important part of children's education. The National Curriculum states that all schools should make provision for PSHE education, drawing on good practice. In order to deliver this, we follow the programme of study from the PSHE Association. In their policy they quote that:
"PSHE education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Evidence shows that well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged."
The PSHE Association programme of study:
"aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, teamworking and critical thinking in the context of learning grouped into three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education)."
