At Holme Valley, we believe that a high quality PSHE curriculum provides pupils with the relevant skills and information which will help them make informed choices concerning their own well-being and that of the wider community.
We aim to provide pupils with the appropriate knowledge to support their understanding of positive relationships, with reference to friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other children and with adults. Our curriculum aims to help pupils understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our pupils with the opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be part of a diverse society. The pupils are encouraged to develop a sense of self-worth through contributing to school life and the wider community. We promote a good understanding of physical and mental wellbeing and the recognition of this as part of daily lives.
We aim to give pupils the appropriate knowledge, understanding and capabilities in the context of a supportive culture which values personal and social development and promotes more confident, motivated and better equipped pupils who understand the basis to make important health and life choices. We aim to develop confident, independent learners who are able to consider the thoughts and feelings of others and have a good understanding of the world around them.
