Our main aim through PSHE and Citizenship Education is to support children to be confident individuals who are physically, emotionally and socially healthy; to become responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society and embrace change; to be able to manage risks together and think of their own and others well-being.
We teach a broad and balanced curriculum, based on the Jigsaw scheme of work, making links with other areas of learning and enriching lessons with visits to areas of interest as well as in-school workshops and visits from public speakers. Recently, for example, Year 6 has taken part in the Junior Citizens project, Year 2 have had scooter training and Reception has been visited by the local vet. We also promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Actively promoting the values means challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values. Children have been learning about British Values through PSHE and Citizenship Education as well as during RE lessons and Collective Worship.
