Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.
These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.
PSHE education helps pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. From making responsible decisions about alcohol to succeeding in their first job, PSHE education helps pupils to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up.
At Langland, we believe that children’s well-being and their emotional, behavioural and social development are key to building well-rounded citizens, who lead successful lives. Therefore, at Langland PSHE is a core subject, interwoven throughout our Curriculum offer. To reflect our school’s unique context and to ensure our children have the necessary skills, knowledge, understanding, self-belief and cultural capital - underpinning our PSHE curriculum is the Langland North Star.
Our children will leave our school:
- with a developing knowledge of themselves and the world in which they live;
- with well-developed social skills that enable them to contribute to their community;
- understanding and using the power of words to unite people and resolve conflict;
- able to keep themselves safe, recognise and manage their feelings;
- able to form positive relationships, respectful of others;
- with high expectations, confident to challenge themselves.
At Langland Community School, we use Jigsaw to support the delivery of our PSHE curriculum. Jigsaw is taught through 6 units:
- Being Me in My World
- Celebrating Differences
- Dreams and Goals
- Healthy Me
- Changing Me
