As a Church of England school, we ensure that social, moral, spiritual and cultural development is at the heart of our loving community of life-long learners. In both P4C and PSHE everyone is valued for their uniqueness, as learners acquire the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. Our PSHE education helps pupils to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up. We believe that learners that are emotionally healthy do better at school; our PSHE education helps them to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn. Our PSHE education also helps our learners to develop skills and aptitudes – like teamwork, communication, and resilience – that are crucial to navigating the challenges and opportunities of the modern world.
Within Reception, in P4C our learners are given the opportunity to make and give reasons for decisions through ‘Would You Rather?’ games. On occasions P4C is linked to either the topic, learners’ interests or age appropriate news items. PHSE often follows the needs of the learners and focuses on developing life skills that will keep them physically and emotionally safe.
