At Hereward Primary School, we are fully committed to providing learning opportunities that extend beyond the curriculum, incorporating the needs of the wider community. As part of this, we recognise that we have a responsibility to nurture students by providing spiritual, moral, social and cultural development whilst promoting British Values. Our aim at Hereward is to deliver exciting learning opportunities, both inside and outside of the classroom that provide the children with essential skills that allow them to live in a diverse community. We endeavor to inspire children to become confident in giving opinions and having a natural curiosity about modern life in Britain, so that they can become fulfilled and responsible citizens of society.
PSHE stands for Personal, Social, Health Education. PSHE education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Our PSHE programme aims to teach pupils to stay safe and healthy and build self-esteem, resilience and empathy.
We use the 'Circle Time' approach to discuss various PSHE issues in a non-threatening way in class and focus on follow-up activities to help improve the children's understanding of a variety of issues.
