PSHE plus Citizenship Curriculum Intent
At Egglescliffe CE Primary School, personal, social and health education enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and give them opportunities to acquire a sound knowledge and understanding of how the United Kingdom is governed, and how citizens participate actively in its democratic systems. They appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community. They are well prepared to take their place in society as responsible citizens, manage their money well and make sound financial decisions.
Our PSHCE curriculum is taught in conjunction with the PSHE association supplemented with the SEAL resources.
