Personal, Social, Health and Economic
“Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.
These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe, and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.”
At Great Chart Primary School we have tailored PSHE to suit our pupils, school and community; giving careful consideration to our school ethos and aims and our pupils’ needs. Our main concept threads for PSHE are: Identity and Relationships; Healthy Lifestyles; Risk; Diversity and Equality; Rights, Responsibilities and Consent; Change and Resilience; Power; Career.
Where possible we make cross-curricula links between PSHE and other subjects; this is particularly true and relevant in English, Religious Education, Physical Education, History and Geography, with other content also linking to Maths, Science and Computing.
PSHE learning comes in many different forms: through whole-class teaching, group activities, individual tasks, assemblies, outside speakers, cross-curricula lessons and discrete lessons.
During PSHE sessions children are encouraged to both ask and answer questions, to deepen their knowledge and understanding. A great deal of time is spent considering scenarios and possible responses to them.
