SMSC/PSHE

 

At St Andrew’s, personal, social and health education (PSHE) enables our pupils to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are present in the world today. We provide our pupils with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our pupils are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

The intent of our PSHE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know and understand more about themselves, school life and the wider community. As a result of this they will become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society who understand how they are developing personally and socially, and give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

Our aims as a school are to help and support our pupils to:

  • Develop the knowledge and skills to enable them to become confident, healthy individuals
  • Develop a safe and healthy lifestyle
  • Understand what makes a good relationship for others
  • Have respect for others in school and in the outside world
  • Develop own sense of self-esteem and emotional well-being and encourage others to do so
  • To make the most of their own abilities
  • Be independent and responsible members of a community, such as school
  • Develop knowledge of ways in which individuals can contribute to society
  • Develop self-confidence and self-esteem, and make informed choices regarding personal and social issues
  • Develop good relationships with other members of the community
  • Acquire enduring values and aspirations
