PSHE

PSHE

We believe that the education of children stretches beyond the requirements of the National Curriculum and that educating children to become informed, sensitive and morally aware is a crucial part of their overall education. PSHE is important to give our children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead a confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active, responsible citizens.

They are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum and in doing so they learn to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning.  Our children are taught to understand and respect our common humanity, diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning. The children will be encouraged to contribute fully to the life of the school and their communities, reflect on their experiences and how they are developing personally and socially. At Newland St John’s we use the Jigsaw scheme of work to support us in achieving these aims effectively.
