Personal, Health and Social Education encompasses health, relationship and citizenship issues.
Many aspects of this curriculum area are delivered naturally as part of the systems in place throughout school. For example, children are encouraged to participate in discussions regarding relevant school issues including codes of conduct, relationships between pupils, making sensible decisions, sharing responsibility etc. The School Council, which involves pupil representatives from each class, provides opportunities for involvement in school decision making and a discussion forum for issues of importance raised by pupils across the school.
Alongside this some areas of PSE are taught through integrated themes. For example, healthy eating is covered within Science units on Ourselves. Within Religious Education work on relationships and community are covered. Other areas such as keeping safe are covered during specific PSE units of work. Younger children address many of the issues through an imaginary bear called Kesby.
