Brownhill Learning Community

PSHE

Overview

Our personal, social and health education (PSHE) programme promotes children’s personal, social, emotional and economic development, as well as their health and well-being. It helps to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active, responsible citizens.

At Brownhill Learning Community our aim is to identify and meet individual learning needs through a nurturing environment. Children’s wellbeing, happiness and safety is our top priority and PSHE is a key tool used to accomplish this.

Our PSHE curriculum is broad and balanced, topics are taught at an appropriate emotional and age level. This ensures that the curriculum:

• Promotes moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our children and of society.

• Prepares our children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences they already face and for adult life.

• Provides information on keeping healthy and safe, both physically and mentally.

• Encourages children to think about choices, so they understand that all actions have consequences. To support pupils with making informed choices to help themselves, others and the environment.
