Personal Social Health Education and Citizenship
HSBC through Money Matters and London Citizens provide invaluable support to the PSHE curriculum.
St Alfege's follows the Personal, Social and Health Education curriculum recommended by the Department for Education’ (DfE). This covers a wide range of subjects such as:
- Citizenship at Key Stages 1 and 2;
- Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco;
- Emotional Health and Wellbeing;
- Nutrition and Physical Activity;
- Personal Finance;
- Sex and Relationship Education.
The children learn socially and morally responsible behaviour through classroom activities and discussion and through experiences beyond the classroom.
Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco
Schools have to prepare young people to lead confident, healthy, safe and independent lives. Therefore, education about drugs, alcohol and tobacco is crucial.
A healthy balance of different types of food provides the energy and nourishment everyone needs to survive and to enjoy life.
Emotional Health and Wellbeing
According the DfE, all pupils should be made aware of the emotional health issues that we all face, and should be encouraged to support their peers.
Both elements of PSHE and Citizenship reflect the fact that education is about helping pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding they need, including developing financial capability, to live confident, independent lives.
HSBC have helped Year 6 develop their financial capability through 'Money Matters.'
Pupils should be able to keep themselves safe in the home, at school, while travelling, at work, in play, in sport and in leisure. Safety education helps them to recognise potential risks.
Sex and Relationship Education
Effective Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) is crucial to developing and maintaining emotional and physical health.
