Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education enables children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community. In doing so we help to develop their self-worth and enable them to work well with others, and become increasingly responsible for their own learning. The children reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the social, moral, cultural and spiritual issues that are part of growing up. We teach the children how society is organised and governed. We provide opportunities for the children to find out about the main political and social institutions that may affect their lives and about their responsibilities, rights and duties as individuals and members of communities. We ensure they experience the process of democracy in school through the school council. The children learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse and multicultural society.
Anti-Bullying Week 2018
Anti-Bullying Week shines a spotlight on bullying and encourages all children, teachers and parents to take action against bullying throughout the year. The theme this year is: ’Choose Respect.'
The Anti-Bullying Alliance, amongst many people, believe that bullying behaviour is a choice and that children and young people can set a positive example by opting to respect each other at school; in their homes and communities and online.
This Anti-Bullying Week we want children to understand:
- The definition of respect.
- That bullying behaviour is a choice.
- That we can respectfully disagree with each other, for example, we don’t have to be best friends or always agree, but we do have to respect each other.
- That we all have to choose respect face to face and online.
