PSHE - Key Stage 2

We believe PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) is vital in a child's education and we aim to provide high quality PSHE through explicit lessons and 'in the moment' teaching and discussions as needs arise.

Our PSHE curriculum has been built with the aim to nurture the development of the 'whole child' so that children develop the ability to tackle the moral, social and cultural issues that come hand in hand with living in our modern world.

We aim to ignite their curiosity and for them to learn about rights and responsibilities, explore their own needs, beliefs and values and appreciate differences in others.  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.  We aim to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more.  PSHE and RSE (Relationships and Health Education) helps our children to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy, safe and prepared for life and work.  Children are encouraged to develop a balanced approach to life, learning and developing their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

Children follow Derbyshire County Council's comprehensive PSHE Matters programme from Reception through to Year 6.  They cover the topics in increasingly greater depth and complexity as they journey through school.
