Personal, Social, Health

& Economic Education 

Our vision is that children will be able to take risks in their learning but know how to stay safe at home and in the community.

PSHE is challenging, motivating, practical and interactive. In our diverse society, children need to develop an understanding of themselves, others and their community and how we can work together in harmony. They also need to know how to maintain healthy lifestyles and relationships with others. PSHE plays an integral role in children exploring these things and helps to prepare them for the community that they live in now and in the future.

Health Relationship Education Curriculum Overview

Policies

At Alwoodley Primary School, there is a whole school approach to PSHE in the curriculum, and throughout the life of the school and its community. Our school is committed to promoting the health and well-being of pupils, and of the whole school community, and fully recognises the important relationship between well-being and learning. We provide the children with a curriculum that is broadly based, balanced and meets the needs of all pupils. Through PSHE and the wider curriculum we promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and work to prepare pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
