Personal, Social and Health Education (P.S.H.E.) is part of the National Curriculum. P.S.H.E. prepares learners to be personally and socially effective by providing learning experiences in which they can develop and apply skills, explore personal attitudes and values, and acquire appropriate knowledge and understanding.
The aim of P.S.H.E. is to develop pupils’ self-esteem and sense of responsibility as well as promote self-respect, respect for others and celebrate diversity. It also aims to equip pupils to live safe, healthy lives and prepare them for the choices and opportunities for life-long learning. Learners will be empowered to participate in their schools and communities as active, responsible citizens and develop positive attitudes and behaviour towards sustainable development and global citizenship and ultimately equip learners for the challenges, choices and responsibilities of work and adult life.
Here in St. Brides P.S.H.E. is an integral part of school life. It is woven in to our Daily Worship as well as the ethos of the school and the manner in which pupils and staff are encouraged to treat and communicate with each other. Pupils are encouraged to be understanding of and considerate to each other and diversity and difference is celebrated across the school.
In individual classrooms P.S.H.E. is taught in line with the Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL (Cymru) in line with WAG Guidance (Ref 1378-2010-WALES). These lessons may be taught discretely, through other areas of the curriculum or through Class Worship as the class teacher feels is appropriate. The SEAL activities are often games and discussions and are usually good fun. They are delivered in a relaxed manner and usually enjoyed by all.
We are also part of the NBAR project in which pupils’ feelings are explored using a computer program. Parents are consulted about this annually and permission is sort for all pupils to take part in the project. Results are processed and, if it is felt necessary we will discuss with parents the merits of including a learner in some small group work. This small group work may be to address, for example, the lack of confidence that some pupils exhibit or perhaps to help pupils that the data suggests may find their own anger or frustration difficult to deal with.
The aim is always to enable pupils to have a happy and fulfilled life in which they achieve their full potential.
