PSHE education at Eastbury Community School is a planned programme of learning through which pupils acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future. PSHE Education stands for Personal Social Health Economic Education. As part of a whole-school approach, PSHE education aims to develop the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
Aims of PSHE
Effective PSHE education equips pupils to live healthy, safe, productive, responsible, happy and balanced lives. it provides opportunities for pupils to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future. PSHE education contributes to pupil’s personal development by helping them to build their confidence, resilience and self-esteem, and to identify and manage risk, make informed choices and understand what influences their decisions. It supports pupils in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in achieving economic wellbeing.
We believe that PSHE education can help reduce or remove many of the barriers to learning experienced by pupils, significantly improving their capacity to learn and achieve. The PSHE education programme makes a significant contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development, their behaviour and safety and the school’s statutory responsibility to promote pupils’ wellbeing. The learning provided through a comprehensive PSHE education provision is essential to safeguarding pupils
This is the area of the curriculum where students will learn about how to look after their health and well-being, recognise the qualities of healthy and unhealthy relationships, explore the impact of life online and focus on careers and financial education.
