At SMSP our vision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) is to enable every child to become a healthy, independent and responsible member of society. In doing so, we encourage the children to play a positive role in contributing to the life of a Christian school and the wider community. As a Church of English school, our Christian values and beliefs are essential to our discussion and teaching throughout this subject.
PSHE is taught as a discrete subject as well as being incorporated into other curriculum areas such as RE, Science and Computing, where appropriate. It aims to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need for personal development – supporting their spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and prepare them for the opportunities and experiences that life has to offer.
Our PSHE programme covers all key stages from Reception to Year 6 and includes three core themes:
- Health and wellbeing
- Living in the wider world.
