PSHE

pshe-main

PSHE enables pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Evidence shows that well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. Therefore, our programme is developed to build resilient, resourceful, reflective, reciprocal and respectful learners.

Our Programme of study for PSHE aims to develop skills and attributes stated above but also self-esteem, risk-management, team working and critical thinking in the context of learning grouped into three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education).

We provide a safe and supportive learning environment where children and young people can develop the confidence to ask questions, challenge the information they are offered, draw on their own experience, express their views and opinions and put what they have learned into practice in their own lives. We provide opportunities for children and young people to make real decisions about their lives, to take part in activities, which simulate adult choices and where they can demonstrate their ability to take responsibility for their decisions.

Oaks Park  encourage young people to reflect on their learning and the progress they have made, and to transfer what they have learned to say and to do from one school subject to another, and from school to their lives in the wider community.

Oaks Park School are proud to hold the quality kite mark for their commitment to PSHE.
