Abingdon Primary School
“Schools are places where ideas should be discussed and debated, not least to give pupils the necessary skills to identify and challenge harmful ideas themselves.” (Unknown)
PSHE education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Evidence shows that well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
At Abingdon Primary school our PSHE Curriculum aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team working and critical thinking in the context of learning grouped into three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world.
We teach PSHE through discreet lessons each week and also through cross curricular links. PSHE education is an integral approach to developing ‘character’. We incorporate teaching from Character Education and Philosophy for Children to ensure we develop each child holistically, instilling tolerance, resilience, self-awareness, values and personal and social effectiveness.
