PSHCE stands for Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education. It is a holistic approach which promotes social and emotional literacy in young students and equips them with the skills they need to lead a healthy and happy life. We aim to develop skills and qualities such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team working and critical thinking in the context of learning grouped into three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world.
Here at Daubeney, we provide high-quality PSHCE education which helps to provide pupils with knowledge, skills and understanding to prepare them to play a full and active part in society. We help the children how to manage their lives now and in the future. These skills and attributes help our children to stay healthy, safe and to prepare them for life and work in a modern world. PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential and leave school equipped with skills they will need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
The staff at Daubeney foster pupils’ keen awareness and understanding of democracy, government and how laws are made and upheld. Pupils are equipped with the skills and knowledge to explore political and social issues critically, to weigh evidence, debate and make reasoned arguments. In addition, it also prepares pupils to take their place in society as responsible citizens. PSHE education helps pupils to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up.
Here at Daubeney, we aim to teach PSHCE through weekly sessions, in addition to modelling it in our everyday practise. PSHCE education helps children and young people to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn, such as anxiety and unhealthy relationships. PSHCE education also helps pupils to develop skills and aptitudes - like teamwork, communication, and resilience – which are crucial to navigating the challenges and opportunities of the modern world.
PSHCE is a whole school approach and does not only apply to the children attending the school but also the staff, parents, carers and the community around us. We believe that parents welcome a partnership between home and school, which supports their children’s personal and social development, as well as to help deal with issues of increasing complexity such as those related to health and staying safe, both online and offline. It can give parents and carers the opportunity to engage with their child’s personal, social, emotional life and help reinforce a close relationship.
We believe that PSHCE contributes immensely to promoting our children’s well-being and ensuring success for each school day.
All our children will succeed; no matter what!
