Personal, Social & Health Education
‘Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) focuses on strengthening the knowledge, skills, and connections to keep children and young people healthy and safe and prepare them for life and work.’
At Whitings Hill we will
Teach the skills, language and strategies to enable the children to live healthy, safe, fulfilling responsible and balanced lives.
Create opportunities to develop positive personal attributes such as resilience, self-confidence, self-esteem and empathy.
Create opportunities to teach accurate, balanced and relevant knowledge to enable them to appreciate what it means to be a positive, tolerant member of a diverse multicultural society.
Plan opportunities to explore, clarify and if necessary challenge, our own and others’ values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities.
Teach accurate, balanced and relevant knowledge and create opportunities to turn that knowledge into personal understanding.
