PSHE teaches children the skills they need to make appropriate decisions about their lives now and in the future. In addition, PSHE encourages children to develop confidence and a sense of responsibility. Pupils are encouraged to develop good relationships with peers and staff, as well as a healthy respect for the many differences between people.
Children experience democracy through our School Council which is made up of elected representatives from Year 2 upwards.
At Faraday we follow a structured PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) and SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) curriculum programme based on children’s needs.
Some PSHE is taught as a discrete subject, but much of it is taught through other subjects including: Religious Education, Science, Geography and English. It is an integral part of each and every school day.
Emphasis is placed on active learning through discussion, investigations and problem- solving activities. Children are rewarded for positive behaviour by members of staff in a range of ways, including earning house points, extra play, stickers and certificates.
