Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in 21st century modern day Britain. PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.
The school’s PSHE programmes are designed by the Manchester Healthy Schools Team and run from year 1 to year 6. Each year pupils revisit the topics and build on their previous knowledge. These programmes include a strong focus on mental health and emotional well-being, staying safe at home and in the community and growing and changing.
A full index of programmes delivered by the school can be viewed on the PSHE webpage.
As PSHE is an important part of the pupils’ self development and understanding of the world, the school continues to work alongside other agencies such as health, the police, the fire service and the NHS to support us to provide up to date, age appropriate programmes.
