P.S.H.E.

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) aims to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident and independent lives, and become informed and responsible citizens.

Children also learn basic rules for keeping themselves healthy and safe and for behaving well.

Through our PSHE curriculum and collective assemblies, children learn about the importance of moral values such as honesty, respect, kindness, tolerance and personal responsibility. We prepare our children for life in a modern, democratic society, and we actively celebrate diversity and ensure equality of opportunity.

Our PSHE provision focuses on helping children develop the skills to build and maintain friendships, to recognise and manage their emotions, to know how to keep themselves safe, to understand and manage change in their lives, including as their bodies change and for Year 6 children, the change as they transfer to secondary school.

Our PSHE curriculum includes Relationships and Sex Education (RSE).  The aims of which include how to develop positive and safe relationships of all kinds - including how to treat each other with kindness, and recognising the difference between online and offline friendships. In Year 6 children learn about human conception. 

Coram Life Education supports the delivery of our PSHE curriculum, particularly in relation to health, wellbeing and drugs education.

We believe that children should have a voice and, as such, we have an active School Council, which is a group of children who are elected by their peers to represent the views of all children and to improve the school.
