Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE)

At Starbank, we see Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) as being an integral thread, weaving through everything we do. PSHE enables children to become healthy, secure, independent and responsible members of society. We believe that the promotion of pupils’ personal and social development fundamentally underpins all other learning.

Through our progressive curriculum, our school environment, and our school ethos, we promote pupils’ self-esteem and emotional well-being; promote British values; and provide the skills that pupils will need to succeed in -and positively contribute to- the wider world. Lessons are sensitively planned, taking thorough consideration for the needs and demands of the pupils in our care.

The pupils learn how to deal with choices and risks, and to meet the challenges that life may present, including the use of social media and the internet, and risk of radicalisation. They learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse multi-cultural school and wider society. Our school’s approach to PSHE aims to help children to identify their values and work to live up to them.
