Personal, Social and Health Citizenship and Education

All children have a weekly PSHCE lesson, within these lessons; the children will develop their understanding of personal, social and health education along with their understanding of citizenship and British values.  The PSHCE curriculum has been designed to be skills-focussed.  Key skills of critical thinking, decision making and communication are developed.  A variety of teaching and learning styles are used including Circle Time, role play, thought showers and written work.
