PSHE lessons will prepare children for being good citizens. They will develop emotional intelligence and the ability to articulate their feelings in order to maintain good mental health as well as understanding the importance of their physical health and being healthy.
PSHE is not a statutory subject in the National Curriculum. However, the National Curriculum states that ‘all schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice’. The intent at Dog Kennel Hill Primary for PSHE education is to use the starting points of the children to provide the experiences, knowledge and skills to become good citizens in the future.
