PSHE and RHE

PSHE education gives pupils the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain…. When taught well, PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.”

Why do we teach PSHE & RHE? 

At Michael Faraday, we believe teaching PSHE & RHE will support our children to become independent, confident, healthy and responsible members of society. Not only do we want our children to develop these necessary skills and values, but we believe they underpin and support their development and learning; intellectually, morally, socially and spiritually.

Our PSHE & RHE equips children with relevant and meaningful content, which is supported through a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health.

With an ever-changing society and varied community we believe it is crucial to provide our children with a strong understanding of the diverse world around them and support them in playing a positive role in contributing to the school and the wider community.

Through our whole-school approach to PSHE & RHE, it is our belief that continually developing these skills will provide our children with the necessary tools to take care of their own mental health and allow them to achieve their best, not only academically throughout their time in education, but beyond and into their own futures.
