Personal, social and health education (PSHE) aims to support pupils to become healthy, independent and responsible members of community. We encourage our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school. Pupils take part in discussions, investigation and problem solving activities. The children are encouraged to take part in a range of practical activities that promote active citizenship. We organise classes in such a way that pupils are able to participate in discussion to resolve conflicts or set agreed classroom rules of behaviour.
