PSHE is an aspect lifelong learning with a focus on physical, moral and social development.

We know that through teaching PSHE we give our pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens.

The PSHE curriculum includes teaching about physical health, emotional health and wellbeing, drug education (including alcohol and tobacco), sex and relationship education (SRE), citizenship, anti-bullying and safety in the environment in an age appropriate way.

We believe that through participating in PSHE, our pupils will become adults who make sensible choices when faced with issues that are part of growing up. We help children to focus on developing social skills such as managing friendships and developing empathy and self-respect. Our teaching encourages pupils to develop positive attitudes and values including an acceptance of diversity and difference.

PSHE is taught in specific lessons but is also fundamental to the whole ethos of Hawley Primary school. The teaching of PSHE can be seen throughout the whole of the school day in every area of school life.
