PSHE provides a timetabled opportunity for the children to explore themes of personal, social, health and economic education, with an emphasis on open discussion, debate and reflection.
We take a consistent approach to teaching important moral values throughout the school and provide a safe and nurturing environment in which children are free to express their ideas and beliefs whilst learning to respect and celebrate cultural, social and religious differences.
We engage our pupils not only in our internal school community via our thriving house system and School Council, but also in the wider world by looking at current affairs, supporting a variety of charities, including Humanitas, and inviting in speakers such as members of our wider local community and parents.
At Benedict House we choose to deliver Personal, Social, Health Education using Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE. Jigsaw PSHE will support the development of the skills, attitudes, values and behaviour, which enable pupils to:
