Taxal and Fernilee CE Primary School


Through our PSHE curriculum, our pupils will develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.  PSHE is at the core of what we do and enables our children to become healthy, independent, confident, and responsible members of society. We recognise that PSHE has an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.

PSHE education addresses both pupils’ current experiences and preparation for their future. The Programme of Study we follow therefore provides a spiral curriculum to develop knowledge, skills and attributes, where prior learning is revisited, reinforced and extended year on year.

Through the three core themes (Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World) we aim to help our pupils understand how they are developing personally and socially, whilst tackling many of the moral, social and cultural issues which are part of growing up. Our children will be taught to keep themselves safe, both physically and emotionally.  We will provide them with opportunities to learn about rights and responsibilities and develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
