Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)

Personal, social and health education (PSHE) deals with many real life issues young people face as they grow up. It gives them the knowledge and skills needed to lead healthy and responsible lives as confident individuals and members of society.

Promoting positive behaviour
PSHE promotes pupils' personal, social and emotional development, as well as their health and wellbeing. It helps to give children the knowledge and skills they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. 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.

Benefits for pupils
PSHE is a non-statutory part of the curriculum, but at Olney Infant Academy we believe in the importance of learning how to lead healthy lifestyles, manage feelings and build positive relationships. PSHE promotes children’s positive behaviour, mutual respect and self-awareness.
