Personal, Social and Health Education
PSHE education is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain.
The national curriculum states that ‘all schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice'.
At Horniman School we believe that the personal, social and health development of each child, in conjunction with their citizenship skills, has a significant role in their ability to learn. It helps to give children the knowledge and skills they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives and how to manage their own emotions.
The programme of study for PSHE is taught through a range of teaching methods, including: circle time, dedicated lessons, assemblies, debates, philosophy lessons and enterprise challenge days.
