PSHE at Redhill

Our Vision 

“Children can benefit enormously from high-quality Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education. Good PSHE supports individual young people to make safe and informed choices.”

At Redhill, we pride ourselves on developing not only children’s academic knowledge, but the child as a whole. We believe that PSHE is a subject which should develop the knowledge, skills and attributes children need to allow them to lead healthy, safe lifestyles within Modern Britain. It should prepare them for the future and give them the confidence they need to succeed in their life. In its simplest form, it should help to develop well-rounded
individuals. Because of this, it is vital to us that this PSHE offer is fully embedded within the ethos of our school. As well as our explicit taught lessons, our offer covers areas including, but not limited to, British Values, SMSC, Mental Health and Wellbeing, Relationships Education and Collective Worship, LGBTQ+ awareness and E-safety.

Our Aims

Through the breadth of our PSHE offer, we aim to successfully achieve our aims:

  • To teach children about themselves, others and the world around them in order to inspire and develop a sense of wonder.
  • To develop a mutual respect of and understanding for those around them and their differences – encouraging them to appreciate and celebrate diversity both within school and in the community.
  • To encourage the ability to reflect on and learn from their own experiences in order to help them grow as individuals.
  • To develop their moral compass – giving them the opportunity to recognise the difference between right and wrong and understand the consequences of their actions – allowing them to develop an understanding of the impact their actions have on both themselves and the wider world.
  • To refine their skills in co-operation and conflict resolution.
  • To raise children’s awareness of the wider world and to encourage them to take an active and responsible role in their learning.
  • To develop the skills in the children that allow them to be happy, healthy, capable and upstanding citizens within society through the school’s values respect, friendship, responsibility, empathy, honesty, independence.
  • To develop the children’s understanding of the British Values (democracy, rule of law, tolerance, individual liberty, mutual respect) to allow them to live successfully as an adult in Modern Britain.
  • To ensure children know mental wellbeing is a normal part of daily life and to promote positive mental health – giving children the knowledge and capability to identify their mental health, take care of themselves and receive the support they need when problems arise.
  • To allow children to have a voice and see that they can have an impact and make a change - developing their sense of self-worth and preparing them to contribute to society.
  • To encourage children to make informed healthy lifestyle choices.
  • To develop a secure understanding of healthy relationships, focusing on family and friendships, both on and offline
  • To provide an open and safe environment where children feel safe to express themselves, ask questions, take part in discussion and develop a strong sense of self-worth – promoting positive emotional and mental wellbeing.
