PSHE Vision Statement
‘No one is born a good citizen or a good democrat or a good leader: it takes time and education.’ (Kofi Annan)
At St. Johns we value our PSHE curriculum as a set of fundamental skills that enable our children to become thoughtful, respectful and responsible members of society. Our PSHE Curriculum enables children to use key learning to think critically and reflect on their own morals, emotions and responsibilities; providing them with the skills and knowledge to prepare them for adult life.
Our ethos is to ensure we provide a high-quality PSHE curriculum that will teach pupils to express their feelings, be nurturing and think critically about the world around them.
Social and emotional education, we believe, is key to children’s development. It allows them to really understand themselves, their happiness and how they relate to and fit in to the world around them. Our curriculum provides the skills children need to interact with others, both within the school environment and outside. At St John’s we promote PSHE within our explicit teaching and through wider opportunities as part of our school ethos.
