PSHE / RHE
PSHE education equips children with knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live a healthy, safe, productive, fulfilled, capable and responsible life. PSHE encourages children to be enterprising and supports them in making effective transitions, learning about the value of money and the economy. It also enables children and young people to reflect and clarify their own values and attitudes, and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future.
We intend to ensure children acquire knowledge and skills to access the wider curriculum and to prepare the children to be a global citizen within their community. We follow a curriculum with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding to fulfil the required PSHE strands of health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. Relationship and Health Education will be taught in line with the Salford Diocese Come and See scheme of work.
After a long period of challenge and disruption following the pandemic, we have been working hard to support children to improve their emotional and mental health and wellbeing; My Happy Mind was recommended to us and fitted our aims and ethos perfectly. It supports children to understand how their brain works, identify strategies to address challenges and difficulties and support one another to feel happy, safe and supported and provides our staff who are committed to improving the outcome of our special children with the skills, resources and strategies to support our children in a holistic and caring way.
