The aims of our PSHE curriculum are to help and support young people through their physical, emotional and moral development. We will help them learn about making positive choices in relation to friendships and relationships, healthy living, setting positive and achievable goals, personal and community safety, and British Citizenship. They will develop an understanding of their bodies and how and why they will grow and change. We will give them the tools which they need to develop healthy mental fitness, resilience, positive assertiveness and prepare them to deal with challenges, changes and loss. We also aim to help them develop lifelong skills in understanding and maintaining their mental health and wellness. Real life examples and first hand experiences through scenarios, role-play and our key offers will help our pupils make sense of their world in a practical and supported way. PSHE, Health, and Wellbeing are of key importance to our school ethos and underpin all areas of the curriculum and school lives.
