PSHE Education at Friezland Primary School

‘A Family Committed to Making a Difference’

Friezland Primary School provides an inclusive, caring and stimulating environment in which all pupils have the opportunity to fulfill their potential in an atmosphere of mutual respect. Our Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE Ed) programme promotes children’s personal, social and economic development, as well as their health and wellbeing. It helps to give children the knowledge and understanding they need to lead
confident, healthy and independent lives and to become informed responsible citizens.

Through a supportive partnership between home and school, children are encouraged to be motivated and independent learners, responsible and confident and able to contribute to the wider community. At Friezland Primary School, children’s wellbeing, happiness and safety are our first priority, and PSHE Ed is the key vehicle through which we share this with children. We regard PSHE Ed as an important, integral component
of the whole curriculum, central to our approach at the core of our ethos. 

This policy applies to pupils, teaching and support staff, volunteers, governors, visitors to school and the before and after school club.
