We aim to help children understand how they are developing personally and socially and how they tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
At Bolton-by-Bowland Primary School we believe that Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) is crucial in supporting children in their personal development, and underpinning learning in the classroom, school, and in the wider community. PSHE education is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy, safe and able to form and maintain positive relationships with others. Children develop an understanding of the ever-changing world in which we live, develop the skills necessary to take an active role in their community and manage their life effectively. Our children experience the process of democracy when forming the school council by an election process. We aim to encourage mutual respect, resilience, pride, independence and foster self-esteem in a happy and caring atmosphere. Within our teaching of PSHE we also cover a range of Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) teaching in order to prepare our children for life in Modern Britain.
