Statement of intent

  • Our intent is to provide a PSHE education that gives pupils the knowledge, skills and attributes to keep pupils safe, healthy and prepared for the realities of modern life. Children need to develop the knowledge, vocabulary and confidence to be able to communicate any safeguarding issues, and to develop an understanding of previous or potential life experiences.
  • We want pupils to make safe decisions now and in the future.
  • Evidence shows that a well delivered PSHE education can improve life chance and academic success, leading to greater success.
  • The Health Education and Relationships Education aspects of PSHE education will be compulsory from September 2020. We want to ensure that every child is guaranteed a PSHE education that covers mental health and wellbeing, physical health (including healthy lifestyle and first aid) and learning about safe, healthy relationships, including understanding consent and negotiating life online.
  • PSHE plays an important role, along with all other curriculum areas, particularly RE, in promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children.
  • PSHE education also contributes to pupils’ personal development.
