At Two Gates School we value PSHE as part of a child's learning experience.
PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education) enables children to acquire the knowledge, understanding, skills, values and attitudes they need to organise their lives. PSHE develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of the local and global society in which they live.
At Two Gates Primary School we aim to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of the community and society. We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through school council, fundraising events, supporting charities and involvement in community activities. Our pupils are given opportunities in PSHE lessons and assemblies to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society.
The Fundamental British Values are also an integral part of daily life at our school - see web page.
We teach PSHE in a variety of ways: as a discrete subject, through PSHE lessons. We use the Entrust Scheme of work and their associated RSE scheme. PHSE is included in our circle time, via assemblies and through other subjects such as RE, History, Geography, English, Maths and Science, as well as through educational visits, community work and activities.
PSHE is taught in the Early Years as part of their everyday life in the setting. It is related to the objectives set out in the Early Learning Goals. Our aim is to develop a child's personal, emotional and social development to their full potential.
