Statement of Intent
At St Laurence's PSHE is integral in ensuring all children are prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities, experiences of life and are equipped with the skills to succeed in the wider world. Personal, social and health education (PSHE) enables our children 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 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.
The scheme of work that we will use is the PSHE Association.
Please take a look at the the documents below for more information. Teachers will also consider those concepts which are current and relevant for modern Britain and specific classes/pupils and incorporate these into daily practise. Throughout the year we supplement our curriculum with other activities which relate to specific days, weeks, and world events, e.g. Anti-bullying week, Parliament week.
