PSHE

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) Curriculum
PSHE continues to be a priority at St George’s. At the heart of St George’s is a strong commitment to
love one another as we understand that many hearts make a school as we are held together in God’s
love. It is through PSHE that we demonstrate a strong commitment to God’s love and ensuring
children at St George’s flourish and develop into thoughtful, kind and resilient adults who value the
important of faithfulness as the underpinning and backdrop for their relationships now and in the
future. Using our Christian values, we seek to develop our children’s wisdom and skills using a moral
framework based on virtues such as honesty, integrity, self-control, courage, humility, kindness,
forgiveness, generosity and a sense of justice.

Personal, Social, and Health Education (PSHE) enables pupils to develop the skills, knowledge and
understanding to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed active and
responsible citizens.

Pupils learn about themselves as growing and changing individuals with their own experiences and
ideas, as members of their communities. They will become more mature, independent and selfconfident as they move through the school. They will learn about the wide world and the
interdependence of communities within it. They develop their sense of moral responsibility and
they learn how to make more confident and informed choices about their health.
Pupils at St George’s are encouraged to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school
and wider community. They learn how society is organised and governed and they experience the
process of democracy.

Our PSHE curriculum starts in Nursery and follows the children through to Year 6. We follow the
PSHE Association as the basis for our planning and teaching and have adopted an enquiry approach.
In Year 5 and Year 6, our children take part in a Healthy Lifestyles Questionnaire. The results for this
questionnaire helps us to tailor our PSHE curriculum to the needs of our children. We complement
our PSHE curriculum by exploring and celebrating key events and national awareness days
throughout the year such as Black History Month, Anti-Bullying Week, Safer Internet Day, Red Card
for Racism, Children’s Mental Awareness, and My Money Week

Our Enquiry approach evolves around the following themes:
• Families and Friendships
• Safe and Respectful Relationships
• Respecting Ourselves and Others
• Belonging to a Community
• Media Literacy and Digital Resilience
• Finance and Employment
• Physical Health and Mental Wellbeing
• Growing and Changing
• Keeping Safe
