In Littletown using the PSHE Association resources we define PSHE as a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills, and the attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.
Our underlying principle of a “continuous line of quality and nurture” permeate this subject with our school logo’s continuous line showing that we understand the challenges of a journey through education. We promise our parents to hold on their child and support them to navigate the peaks and troughs which life will present.
Through a well-planned and delivered curriculum we aim to nurture, challenge, and build resilience, helping our children to stay healthy and safe. Our PSHE curriculum will support mental and physical health and ultimately help our pupils to achieve their academic potential. We know every human interaction counts and aim to actively develop positive relationships within and beyond school. We view the partnership of home and school as vital in providing the context of healthy lifestyles and positive relationships.
We ensure PSHE is inclusive and meets the needs of all our pupils, including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) by using questions and resources which are designed to meet the needs of our children when they are developmentally ready. We ensure our RSE teaching focuses specifically on equality in all areas of society.
Our school’s overarching aims for our pupils are sub-divided into four main areas:
- Health and Well-Being
- Living in the Wider World
- Online safety
