“PSHE education is a planned programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives. As part of a whole school approach, PSHE develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.” The PSHE Association.
At Queen Emma Primary School we aim to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through class & school councils, fundraising events, supporting nominated charities and involvement in community activities. Our pupils are given opportunities in PSHCE lessons to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society.
We teach PSHCE in a variety of ways: as a discrete subject, via assemblies and through other subjects such as RE, History, Geography, Literacy, Maths and Science, as well as through outdoor educational visits, community work and activities.

Examples Of Learning
In year four we have focused on financial responsibilities. We can understand how people spend their money on different things, so we set a challenge for groups. They were to discuss and decide on some possibilities for what to spend £10 on. We had some very enthusiastic discussions! Well done all!
