PSHE Vision Statement
Stone St Mary’s Primary School is a nurturing learning environment in which each child is encouraged to develop their full potential and where their achievements and successes are celebrated and rewarded. As a school, we believe that children are all individuals and therefore, we aim to encourage mutual respect, responsibility, and foster self-esteem in a happy and caring environment. The teaching and learning of PSHE supports and upholds this vision. The PSHE program is reviewed and evaluated regularly to ensure provision is relevant, up-to-date and of the highest quality.
Our curriculum is split into three core themes:
- Health and wellbeing
- Living in the wider world
The aims of PSHE education within Stone St Mary’s Primary School are to provide children with:
- correct and relevant knowledge
- opportunities to create personal understanding
- opportunities to explore and challenge a range of values, attitudes, beliefs, rights, and responsibilities
- a range of skills and strategies to live a healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced life.
PSHE deals with the diverse beliefs, values, and attitudes that individuals and societies hold. They help pupils to develop themselves, their understanding of the world, giving time for reflection and an opportunity to communicate their feelings. PSHE helps children to acquire British values and attitudes that are necessary if they are to make sense of their experiences within school and life itself, value themselves, respect others, appreciate differences and diversity and feel confident and informed as a modern British citizen.
