Developing positive relationships
PSHEE (Personal, Social and Health and Emotional Education) helps boys and girls to develop positive relationships with their classmates and friends. We focus on our Redcliffe values such as kindness, perseverance and courage so that pupils become kind, compassionate, curious and mature listeners, thinkers and speakers.
Through PSHEE lessons, pupils learn to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly independent learners. They reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, and they learn about many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. Topics covered include bullying, internet safety, and the importance of mental and physical health. The school actively promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
Regular PHSEE assemblies take place each term addressing our school values of kindness, perseverance, courage, and respect for one another. To ensure that pupil and staff welfare is maintained, all pupils undertake a mindfulness awareness course called ‘Paws 4 Thought’, and staff receive half-termly wellbeing slots.
Pupils are encouraged to talk to any member of staff if they have a worry. Classes have a Worry Monster or a Worry Box where written worries can be posted anonymously and shared with the class.
