PSHCE is a planned, developmental programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future.

As part of a whole-school approach, PSHCE develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
The PSHCE programme makes a significant contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development, their behaviour and safety and the school’s statutory responsibility to promote pupils’ wellbeing.

PSHCE is delivered throughout the school through one 30 minute lesson per week. It is more of a discussion based lesson where children are encouraged to share their thoughts, experiences and opinions about each topic.

In Years 5 and 6, we have a visitor who comes in on several occasions throughout the school year, delivering sessions such as: Cyber, Lifeline and Puberty.

This program is based on three core themes:

1. Health and Wellbeing

a. Healthy lifestyles
b. Keeping safe
c. Growing and changing

2. Relationships

a. Healthy relationships
b. Feelings and emotions
c. Valuing difference

3. Living in the Wider World

a. Rights and responsibilities
b. Taking care of the environment
c. Money matters
