PSHE education is central to the Chesterfield ethos, supporting children in their development and underpinning learning in the classroom, school and in the wider community. We believe that values are fundamental in underpinning our beliefs and actions in all areas of our lives. The Chesterfield values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience are at the heart of everything we do. We aim to provide children with a strong PSHE education, alongside the school values and British values, where all children are enabled to become successful learners, achieve their full potential and are ready for their next steps in life.
Our goal for PSHE education is that children know how to be safe, healthy and emotionally regulated, so they can manage their future lives in a positive way, by developing:
- an understanding of how to look after their physical and mental health and well-being;
- the ability to build healthy, respectful relationships based on equality and non-discrimination; and
- the personal, social and academic attributes needed to make a meaningful contribution to society.
Our curriculum drivers of communication, oracy, reading, aspirations and inclusion for all shape every aspect of PSHE, are embedded in teaching and learning and develop the child as a whole.
