Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)
At St Jerome's, we firmly believe that PSHE helps to foster pupil well-being and develop resilience and virtues that are fundamental to pupils being happy, successful and productive members of society. Our PSHE curriculum puts into place the key learning to teach our pupils how to be healthy emotionally, physically and mentally. Central to this is each pupil's ability to believe that they can achieve goals, both academic and personal; to stick to tasks that will help them achieve those goals even when the reward may be distant or uncertain. Teaching on the subject of mental well-being is also key to ensuring that pupils are well prepared for the challenges which lie ahead in their lives.
Through our PSHE curriculum, we aim to develop confident children who make effective decisions and become respectful of the views and feelings of others. We want our children to develop their understanding of building relationships with family, friends and the wider community. We aim for them to have the skills to effectively manage disputes and care for themselves and others.
