"Effective PSHE Education should equip children and young people with the knowledge, understanding and attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives." - Sir Alasdair McDonald
At Totternhoe CE Academy we use the PSHE Association planning for Key Stage 1 and 2. In preschool and reception they follow the Early Year Foundation Stage Framework.
To embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life, pupils need knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships and to build their self-efficacy. Pupils can also put this knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when facing risks, challenges and complex contexts. Everyone faces difficult situations in their lives. These subjects can support young people to develop resilience, to know how and when to ask for help, and to know where to access support.
