Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) enables children to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens.
It promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our children. Links are made with the UNCRC (United Nations Convention for the Rights of the Child), not only across the curriculum but also with our core British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
Within PSHE, children build their personal identities, confidence and self-esteem; they learn to identify and manage risk, cope with change, make informed choices and understand what influences their decisions. Through developing greater self-awareness, empathy, the ability to manage emotions and to communicate constructively, children are better able to form and maintain good relationships, develop the essential skills for future employability and enjoy their lives.
An important aspect of PSHE education is providing opportunities for children and young people to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future.
