Why you teach it - your purpose of study
At Langold Dyscarr Community School, PSHE is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives both now and in the future. PSHE education helps pupils to manage many of the most crucial opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face as they grow up. These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in today’s society. Addressing social disadvantage, pupils are supported to achieve their academic potential thereby enabling them to leave school equipped with the skills they will need throughout later life.
We believe that parents welcome a partnership between home and school which supports their child’s personal and social development, and helps deal with the issues of increasing complexity such as those related to mental health, RSE and staying safe both online and offline.
What you teach - your programme of study
The intent of our PSHE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more. As a result of this they will become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society who understand how they are developing personally and socially, and give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society.
The PSHE curriculum will also address local issues as identified through the School Profile. At present the following areas are of high importance: Childhood obesity, healthy lifestyles, aspirations, gender fluidity and RSE.
