PSHE Intent

At St. Benedict’s, through PSHE, we aim to:

  • Provide a secure, happy and stimulating environment where children and staff work together in an atmosphere of trust, respect and kindness, and where children can learn to be tolerant, courteous and caring.
  • Make learning enjoyable by offering a broad curriculum that provides as many exciting opportunities as possible for our children to try out new things and find where their talents and potential lie.
  • Teach and foster self-esteem for every pupil, the development of good working habits, an enquiring mind and a self-discipline that openly demonstrates kindness to others.
  • Encourage children to take pride in their work and come to see the great benefits to be found in working hard, playing fair and setting high aspirations for themselves, but not to the detriment of their peers.

We aim to take a whole school thematic approach to our provision of PSHE so that different year groups can work on similar themes at the same time throughout the year. This allows for greater cross-phase collaboration, enables a link between the PSHE curriculum and other subjects. This helps to build a spiral programme of learning which facilitates progress for every child year on year.


Please see our PSHE Policy below for more details about the implementation and impact of the teaching and learning of PSHE at St Benedict's.
