PSHEE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) encompasses all areas designed to promote childrens personal, social, health and economic development. It gives children the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need to stay healthy and safe, develop worthwhile relationships, respect differences, develop independence and responsibility, and make the most of their own abilities and those of others.
We use the Wiltshire Learn4Life scheme which provides the children with a wide range of activities and resources to support their learning.
Learn4Life was written by Wiltshire teachers for Wiltshire teachers. It is a complete scheme of work for years 1 to 6, which is designed to integrate the SEAL emotional literacy materials with the wider aspects of the PSHEE Education curriculum.
SEAL helps children to develop self-awareness, motivation, social skills and managing their feelings.
These skills will help our children to become better learners, get on better with other people and be responsible citizens. They are part of every area of life.
Our ethos and PSHEE curriculum ensure that we meet the 5 strands of Every Child Matters which states that every child has the right to: Be Healthy, Stay Safe, Enjoy ad Achieve, Make a Positive Contribution, and Achieve Economic Well-being.
