PSHE & Citizenship

We believe that the education in PSHE and Citizenship enables children to become healthier, more independent and more responsible members of society. We encourage our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community. In doing so, we help to develop their sense of self-worth. We teach them how society is organised and governed. We ensure that the children experience the process of democracy through participation in the School Parliament. We teach children about their rights and about their responsibilities. They learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse and multi-cultural society. Indeed, the teaching of PSHE and Citizenship helps in many ways to meet the objectives set out in the Children’s Act 2004 (Every Child Matters) – ‘that to be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution, and achieve economic well-being’. At Our Lady of Lourdes primary school we strive to develop the children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and this policy is linked to the School’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Policy.
