What is PSHE?
'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 association.
In Rice Lane, we place a high importance in equipping our pupils with the skills, attitudes and attributes needed to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. Our PSHE curriculum includes areas from the three main themes from the PSHE association: health and well-being, relationships and living in the wider world. Through our curriculum we also promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our pupils and aim to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
We aim to help our pupils achieve the following objectives:
- recognise and acquire healthy patterns of behaviour to keep themselves and others safe
- recognise and manage risk and risky situations
- develop attitudes, practices and understanding conducive to developing positive, healthy relationships (examples include: challenging prejudice, celebrating difference, understanding mutual respect and exercising tolerance)
- develop and practise decision making – make informed choices
- develop confidence and self-esteem – how to be part of a nurturing environment
- critically evaluate influences on health, health attitudes, values and beliefs
- exercise their rights and responsibilities whilst developing independence
- understand the responsibility of individuals, groups and organisations in playing an active role as members of a democratic society and understanding British values
- develop financial understanding and capability
- improve their quality of life; healthy body and mind
- develop skills to enable successful transitions
