Personal, Social and Health and Citizenship Education
Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education enables pupils to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. It encourages pupils to develop skills, attitudes and values that will influence their whole life. It includes such diverse areas as the environment, making responsible choices, financial awareness, keeping safe and being healthy. PSHE is taught as a subject and through other areas of the curriculum such as Science, Religious Education, Literacy and Collective Worship.
At St Mark's we follow the HeartSmart program to deliver our PSHE. It's creative approach enables us to build character, emotional health and resilience in our children. It provides the opportunities for the children to acquire the foundational principles and skills that will improve their mental health, relationships and academic achievement.
