PSHE/ SRE at Woodbank...

At Woodbank Primary School, personal, social and health education (PSHE) enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of their society and is central to our curriculum; it helps children grow and develop as individuals and as members of families and communities. Through PSHE pupils will have the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens.

Our children are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of their school and local communities. We want our children to reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. They learn to understand and respect our common humanity, diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.

"PSHE education gives pupils the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain."  PSHE Association
