PSHE and RSE at St Nicholas

Statement of Intent

Our intention is that when children leave St. Nicholas Church of England Primary School, they will do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active, positive and successful role in today’s diverse society.

PSHE is at the core of what we do and enables our children to become independent, confident, healthy and responsible members of society, as well as developing the “whole child” intellectually, morally, socially and spiritually.

Through our delivery of PSHE, it is our belief that excellence in these areas will lead to excellence across the curriculum and beyond in later life. Our PSHE curriculum equips children with relevant and meaningful content, which is supported through a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health.

With an ever-changing society, we are able to provide our children with a secure understanding of the diverse world around them and support them in playing a positive role in contributing to the school and the wider community.

Weaving through the heart of our PSHE teaching, is a commitment to enhancing and promoting our core Christian Values; Love, Courage, Respect, Friendship and Forgiveness
