PSHE Intent Statement
Our intention is that when children leave St Michael’s, they will do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active, positive and successful role in today’s diverse society. We want our children to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible if they put their mind to it.
Our PSHE curriculum is closely matched to the needs of our children and the diverse society that they are growing up in. It is regularly monitored to ensure that the topics taught explore the demands of modern life. At St Michael’s we believe that PSHE is a vital tool to ensuring that children develop emotionally as well as academically and therefore is held with high regard by all within our school. The PSHE curriculum is coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge, skills and attributes for pupils to keep themselves healthy, safe and prepared for life and work. In addition to this, we prepare our children to play active roles as citizens within the wider society; allowing them to develop positive relationships and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
