PSHE is an integral part of our everyday life at St Giles’. We place great importance in providing children with a good foundation of knowledge in all aspects of health and well-being, relationships and living in the wider world and have the opportunities to practise these skills in a safe and happy environment.
Our PSHE curriculum encompasses our three school values: responsibility, resilience and respect. In the teaching of health and well-being, we want our children to have a good understanding of the importance of how to develop a healthy body and mind through exercise, healthy eating and mindful thinking. In their endeavour to reach a healthy mind and body, they will also develop a sense of resilience to reach their own end goal and respect others attempts at reaching their own goal.
As a school it is fundamental that children develop an understanding and learn to take responsibility and reflect on their relationships with others within the class, school and wider community.
Our PSHE curriculum helps children to become independent and with it brings increased responsibility to keep themselves and others safe. We want to prepare children for the future by encouraging the development of characteristics for life such as a love of learning, perseverance, resilience, integrity, teamwork and critical thinking.
