Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship (PSHCE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. PSHCE at Dringhouses is taught as a discrete school subject but it also underpins and links to the school values and ethos. Through this explicit and implicit teaching, children 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 also states that ‘all schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice'. PSHE education contributes to schools' statutory duties outlined in the Education Act 2002 to provide a balanced and broadly-based curriculum. As a school, our long term objectives aim to support pupils spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development whilst preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. The relationships and health aspects of PSHE education will be compulsory in all schools from 2020.
Our PSHCE Co-ordinator is Mrs Lizi Backhouse.
