Personal, social and health education (PHSE)
Aims and Objectives
PSHE is an integral part of the school curriculum and is intended to help pupils develop the academic, social and emotional knowledge and skills that will help them in both in education but wider life.
Teaching and Learning:
At Holy Innocent's we follow the PSHE Association's Curriculum which has been adapted to the needs of the class and pupils. The curriculum follows three main themes which are Health & Wellbeing, Relationships and Living with the Wider World. PSHE learning is covered in many ways and is constantly reinforced through the wider school day. Separate lessons, more discreet teaching as part of other subjects, school visits, events and occasions such as anti-bullying week, mental health awareness and so on. Children are strongly encouraged to ask questions, consider ideas and to share ideas.
Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development through British Values:
Spiritual Values: As a faith school we learn about Catholicism and it is an integral part of the wider school ethos. However, as a part of a tolerant and inclusive atmosphere we also learn about the faiths and beliefs of other people and communities.
Moral: Learning about what is right and wrong, how to consider our actions and act in a considerate and respectful manner. As well as the importance of the law.
Social: we learn about how to be a part of a multi-faith country made of different groups and peoples. Specifically a focus on democracy and respect for others, individual rights and tolerance.
Cultural: celebrating and respecting diversity as part of wider British values.
