“PSHE education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work. Well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. It aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, teamworking and critical thinking in the context of three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world.” PSHCE Association
Across the Queens’ Federation we aim to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through class and school councils, fund raising events, supporting nominated charities and involvement in community activities. Our pupils are given opportunities in PSHCE lessons to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society.
We teach PSHCE in a variety of ways: as a discrete subject, via assemblies and through other subjects such as RE, History, Geography, Literacy, Maths and Science, as well as through outdoor educational visits, community work and activities, and within Early Years as part of day-to-day life.
