"All smiles returned"


PSHE and Citizenship

The PSHE Association states:

'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.'

Here at Ward Jackson, we wholeheartedly agree with this statement and recognise the importance of developing the aforementioned skills and attributes in order for our pupils to become resilient, independent and knowledgeable citizens who thrive in the future.  

PSHE and Citizenship is assessed from Y1 - Y6. Essential skills include:

  • Confidence and responsibility
  • Views and opinions
  • Health and hygiene
  • Relationships and respect
  • Personal safety
  • Emotional well-being
  • Collaboration
  • Diversity
  • Citizenship
  • Financial understanding
  • Relationships and feelings
  • Goals

What our pupils say about PSHE:

Kadi says - "We respect the rights of each other."

Laila says - "In circle time we can talk about our feelings and how to be a good person."

Noah says - "We learn about right and wrong."

Josh says - "I like the circle time games and talking, acting things out and making posters that we do in PSHE."
