Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)

The Subject Leader for PSHE is Mrs. Howarth

 

To lead independent, happy lives, children must develop their self-confidence. This involves taking responsibility for their own health and well-being. In this subject, children learn about these important life skills. They learn not only about their own rights, duties and responsibilities but also about the rights and responsibilities of others. Teaching aims to help them respect and value the richness and diversity of our society.

 

Teaching for every child
