PSHE and Citizenship

PSHE helps to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives.

Through the integration of PSHE into topic work and regular P4C (philosophy for Children) and Global Citizenship activities pupils take part in a range of activities enabling them to work with others and recognise their own worth. They reflect on experiences and tackle many of the moral and social issues we see in school life and the wider world. The pupils learn to understand and respect diversity and differences enabling them to form effective relationships with others.

Pupils become more aware of how to look after themselves through both Science and PSHE. We also aim to give pupils understanding of the importance of diet, hygiene and exercise.

Sexual Relationship Education (SRE) forms part of the Health Education and Science Curriculum in school and is rooted in our Catholic Faith. Children in Year 5 & 6 are taught about the importance of a loving relationship and how their bodies will change through puberty using the scheme ‘All That I Am’, as recommended by the Nottingham Diocese.
