What is PSHE?
Personal, social, health and economic education focuses on developing the knowledge, skills and connections to keep us healthy, safe and prepared for life and work.
PSHE at Cockton Hill Junior School:
At CHJS, PSHE enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. It aims to help them to 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. This has been recognised through our Gold status as a Rights Respecting School. 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. We promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive PSHCE education programme (referred to in school as We Believe Time). PSHCE education is the curriculum subject that gives children the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live safe, healthy, productive lives and meet their full potential.
PSHCE is an embedded part of our broad and balanced curriculum. Pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development is at the heart of this. British Values are promoted through the overarching aims and objectives of PSHCE by supporting children to become healthy responsible members of society, as well as preparing them for life and work in modern Britain.
