PSHE (personal, social and health education) provides us with skills that help us build respectful and understanding relationships. It helps to develop a sense of self worth. It teaches us how to be healthy, independent and responsible members of society. PSHE provides us with life skills to help us in later life with our families, jobs and financial stability and how to be part of a wider community.
At Avenue Primary School 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 the learning council, fundraising events, supporting nominated charities and involvement in community activities. Our pupils are given opportunities in PSHE lessons using the Cambridgeshire Scheme of work and assemblies to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society.
We teach PSHE in a variety of ways: as a discrete subject, through the Cambridgeshire scheme lessons, via assemblies and through other subjects such as RE, History, Geography, Cooking in Design and Technology, English, Maths and Science, as well as through outdoor educational visits, community work and activities.
