At North Baddesley Junior School, we aim to provide a stimulating, caring environment where children are enabled to become successful learners through providing meaningful opportunities to ask questions, listen respectfully to the viewpoints of others and encourage their individual responsibility. Within our school, our vision and values are at the core of everything we do, inside and outside of the classroom. We believe that the teaching and learning of PSHE supports children to develop their understanding of the world, their ability to communicate appropriately in a wide range of situations and become aware of their role in society.

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) is a planned programme of learning through which we would like our pupils to acquire knowledge, understanding and the necessary skills needed to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. The qualities and attributes we aim for pupils to develop and use will be needed in a variety of personal, social, moral, cultural and behavioural situations.

Our aims for PSHE

PSHE Primary National Curriculum

Under the guidance of the National Curriculum, it states that every state-funded school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which:

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and
  • prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

Furthermore, PSHE is an important and necessary part of all pupils' education and schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice. Schools are also free to include other subjects or topics of their choice in planning and designing their own programme of education.
