Personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) are at the heart of our curriculum at White Ash School. Our curriculum reflects our school values and dedication to providing our children with a wide range of learning opportunities and experiences to promote the qualities, attitudes, knowledge and understanding to stay safe, healthy and prepared for life’s opportunities. PSHE is delivered in a safe and structured environment following the statutory guidance provided by the Department of Education with regards to drug, financial, sex and relationship education and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.
Our inclusive and ambitious curriculum focuses on teaching both explicit and implicit knowledge and skills which reflects pupils’ increasing independence and personal and social awareness. It provides the fundamental building blocks and characteristics to develop effective relationships, personal and social responsibility, manage personal safety, including online, manage the physical and emotional changes at puberty, introduces them to a wider world and enables them to make safe and informed decisions.
Our children are supported to learn to adapt their skills to be successful throughout life whist developing their spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness for life and work in modern Britain.
