Personal Social Health and Economic Education at our school enables pupils to develop positive attitudes and behaviours. It supports pupils in making informed decisions and judgements, developing their own role within their community and within society. PSHE encourages respect for others and others’ opinions and promotes a pupil’s own self-esteem. It teaches about a healthy lifestyle, both physically and emotionally and children learn about keeping themselves safe.
At our school, the teaching of Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education gives the children the skills and knowledge to become healthy, independent and responsible citizens. As a school we use the core themes from the PSHE Association Scheme of Work which are – Health and Wellbeing, Relationships, Living in the Wider World.
Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
The aim of RSE at St John's is to equip children and young people with the information, skills and values to have safe, fulfilling and enjoyable relationships.
Good quality RSE promotes the core values of respect, love and care. It also provides the opportunity for children and young people to reflect on their own attitudes and beliefs and those of their peers and others. RSE is an integral element of personal, social, health, citizenship education (PSHE)
