“The final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands”. -Anne Frank
“PSHE education gives pupils the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.”
“PSHE education is the school subject through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. It develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.” - PSHE Association
At Darell, PSHE is at the core of what we do and enables our children to become empathetic, safe, and responsible members of society who are not afraid to stand up for what they believe is right.
We have created our PSHE curriculum with the aims for it to be an enriching and relevant curriculum that is made for our children. Most importantly, we believe that the children’s PSHE learning should make a difference to their lives.
Weaving through the heart of our PSHE teaching is the promotion of our school values; enjoyment, equality, aspiration and responsibility. Children are provided with a strong understanding of the diverse world around them but also the dangers that might be presented to them. We aim to supply children with the tools and confidence to overcome these situations and to know where they can seek help.
Our RSE teaching aims to equip our children with the information, skills and values which are needed to lead safe, fulfilling, enjoyable relationships. Our teaching prepares pupils for puberty and confidence to identify unsafe relationships and the knowledge of what to do.
