PSHE (Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education)
Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education helps to give children the knowledge, skills andunderstanding that they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
Learning opportunities take place in specific lessons, circle and worship times.
HeartSmart is a resource to enrich our delivery of PSHE. It's aim is to build resilience, strengthen emotional intelligence and develop active empathy in the hearts of our children. Fundamentally it is about loving and accepting ourselves as well as loving and responding to others.
The programme is focused around Boris the Robot that helps to motivate children to become actively involved with the programe and learning.
There are 5 themes (known as 'High Five') that Boris shares throughout the year which are linked to the principles of feeling valued, considering others and showing empathy, forgiveness, being truthful and not giving up when faced with challenge.
