Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education
PSHE Education includes everything our school does to promote pupils' good health and well-being. Overall our PSHE Education curriculum exemplifies how we help children to be healthy, happy, economically secure and successful citizens. However, much of this is also influenced and developed through day to day teaching, keeping children safe and our overall ethos including collective worship.
We use the Jigsaw programme to teach all aspects of PSHCE Education.
How we promote fundamental British Values:
- include in suitable parts of the curriculum, as appropriate for the age of pupils, material on the strengths, advantages and disadvantages of democracy, and how democracy and the law works in Britain, in contrast to other forms of government in other countries;
- ensure that all pupils within the school have a voice that is listened to, and demonstrate how democracy works by actively promoting democratic processes such as a school council whose members are voted for by the pupils;
- use opportunities such as general or local elections to hold mock elections to promote fundamental British values and provide pupils with the opportunity to learn how to argue and defend points of view;
- use teaching resources from a wide variety of sources to help pupils understand a range of faiths, and cultures.
