PSHE covers a wide range of topics designed to keep the students safe and prepare them for the wider world.
The intention is to allow students the opportunity to show SMSC via:
- An ability to be reflective about their own beliefs, religious or otherwise, that inform their perspective on life and their interest in and respect for different people’s faiths, feelings and values
- A sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them
- A use of imagination and creativity in learning
- Willingness to reflect on their experiences
- An ability to recognise the difference between right and wrong and readily apply this understanding in their own lives, recognise legal boundaries and, in so doing, respect the civil and criminal law of England
- An understanding of the consequences of their behaviour and actions
- An interest in investigating and offering reasoned views about moral and ethical issues and ability to understand and appreciate the viewpoints of others on these issues
- An understanding and appreciation of the wide range of cultural influences that have shaped their own heritage and those of others
- An understanding and appreciation of the range of different cultures within school and further afield as an essential element of their preparation for life in modern Britain
- A knowledge of Britain’s democratic parliamentary system and its central role in shaping our history and values, and in continuing to develop Britain
- An interest in exploring, improving understanding of and showing respect for different faiths and cultural diversity and the extent to which they understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity, as shown by their tolerance and attitudes towards different religious, ethnic and socioeconomic groups in the local, national and global communities.
