St. Patrick’s Primary School – Personal, Social and Health Education
At St. Patrick’s Primary School we want every child to be happy and enthusiastic learners of PSHE as this is an enormous part of life in and out of school. We want them to be eager to achieve their very best in order to fulfil their God-given talents. We firmly believe that the recipe for success is high quality teaching, which is central to the life of our happy, caring school.
What is PSHE and how is it taught?
PSHE stands for Personal, Social and Health Education. It is an important part of your child's national curriculum learning.
Personal, social and health education (PSHE) helps to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
This is taught through the Life to the Full scheme as well as a range of learning opportunities for example as part of: assemblies, through learning in class, circle time, special school projects, Milo's money and other activities that enrich pupils' experiences.
Supporting PSHE at St Patrick's Catholic Primary School
Alongside PSHE learning we also deliver the statutory Relationships and Health Education through Ten Ten’s new programme for Catholic primary schools, Life to the Full. This can be found on the RHE tab under curriculum subjects.
