Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE)


We follow the aims of the Soke curriculum along with our own based on our PSHCE scheme. The trust aims that overlay our own are:

  • Identify what we have chosen to teach and why
  • Help pupils link new and prior learning
  • Make learning accessible for all pupils including those who have SEND
  • Identify key vocabulary for each subject and incorporate them into every unit of study
  • Develop children’s cultural capital

The aims of our specific PSHCE curriculum are:

  • To develop children’s knowledge and skills to be safe and healthy physically, mentally and online.
  • To understand what makes a healthy relationship
  • To teach strategies for dealing with situations.
  • To develop tolerance and respect for themselves and others
  • To become responsible for their own actions
  • To enhance skills for communication, empathy and healthy relationships which underpin both success in learning and positive relationships
  • To support the development of resilience, self-esteem, self-efficacy and aspiration
  • To offer accurate and relevant knowledge to support decisions about personal wellbeing and health
  • To explore the relevance of knowledge for personal situations and decision making
  • To offer opportunities to explore, clarify and if necessary challenge, their own and others’ values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities
  • To offer the skills and strategies they need in order to live healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced lives.
