Character and Ethics

Vision Statement

PSHE enables our children to become healthy, independent, and responsible members of society. It allows students to Identify their personal qualities, attitudes, skills, attributes and achievements and what influences these. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social, and cultural issues that are part of growing up by allowing students to explore their attitudes, values and beliefs about them and develop the skills, language and strategies needed to manage any issues should they encounter them in their lives.
