PSHE at Gorsemoor
PSHE encompasses all areas designed to promote children’s personal, social and health development. It gives children the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need to stay healthy and safe, develop worthwhile relationships, respect differences, develop independence and responsibility, make the most of their own abilities and those of others. It is very closely linked with Every Child Matters, S.M.S.C., and encompasses our work within Citizenship, Social, Emotional Aspects of Learning (S.E.A.L.) and towards National Healthy Schools Status.
Parental and Community Involvement
Parents are invited to join in events in school. Working with parents is a vital part of the whole school approach to PSHE and Citizenship.
There will also be links with local businesses, councillors and our M.P. as part of the work in Citizenship. We also work closely with the local church, and have strong links with the vicar and minister.
We involve outside agencies e.g. School Health Advisors, School Police liaison officer, dental health advisors etc. as much as possible to deliver aspects of the curriculum. These are highlighted in our scheme of work for PSHE and Citizenship.
This school believes that partnership with parents and the community enables us to receive specialist support and information to plan the best possible PSHE and Citizenship curriculum for our children.
