At Yealmpton Primary School, we believe that PSHE is a basic entitlement for all children.
It is embedded within the ethos of our school and is reflected in the general aims/mission statement– Being the best you can be.
PSHE is about what it is to be a person. It is a planned programme of learning through which children acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives. It equips children with the knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies required to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives. It encourages them to be enterprising and supports them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices. A critical part of PSHE education at Yealmpton is providing opportunities for children to reflect and clarify their own values and attitudes and explore the sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future.
The National Curriculum provides a framework that guides the PSHE skills and learning of the children as they progress through the school.
