Here at Weddington Primary School, Personal, Social, Health and Emotional (PSHE) education is a planned developmental programme of learning through which our children acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives both now and in the future.
Through a whole school approach, PSHE education develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
Our aim is to equip our children with the knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies they require to live healthy, safe, capable and responsible lives. We encourage pupils to be enterprising and support them to make effective transitions throughout their lives from childhood to young adulthood.
Over the Academic Year, the whole school continually supports the ethos of making ourselves the best person we can be and is mindful of the impact our living world has on our social and emotional welbeing.
In November, we work on the Nationwide Anti-Bullying initiative, which helps the children to understand the consequences of bullying from all perspectives.
In February, the whole school take part in the 'Taking Care - protective behaviours' initiative during a whole school Health & Safety week, offering insights into how we can take care of ourselves both physically and emotionally.
In June, we work on keeping safe over the holidays whilst in different situations and environments.
To promote well-being during Children's Mental Health week, our children enjoyed sharing their experiences of being brave.
There were some fabulous stories told and photos shown - we saw children holding snakes, completing a zip wire, learning to ride a skateboard, swimming without putting their feet down, having an operation and so much more.
We loved hearing all of the bravery experiences which make our children proud - it has given me even more respect for their resilience.
