PSHE

Introduction

Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education which helps them develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain.

Pupils are taught how to stay safe right from the start of their time at Christ Church and PSHE lessons commence in Year 1, continuing through to Year 6.
