At Westcliff Primary Academy we place importance in high quality Personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) that reflects the needs of our pupils and our local community.
PSHE can encompass many areas of study and can be taught across the curriculum.
Alongside this pupils will directly reflect on:
- How to keep myself safe
- How to keep myself healthy
- How to develop positive relationships
- How to become a responsible citizen
- Understanding feelings and emotions
- Online safety
- Issues relating to money
- Hazard awareness
This will be recapped and built upon in Key Stage Two where they will:
- Learn about their growing and changing bodies
- The working world
- A world without judgement
Pupils will also learn about how their mind works through our ‘Mind Up’ programme. Having an understanding about this will enable them to become more open about mental health and strategies to support this.
We believe pupils at Westcliff school should leave us with the knowledge to make safe , informed , decisions. Therefore empowering them to become valuable members of our local community and the wider world.
