What is PSHEE? -----Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education.
PSHE can help the children at Holden Clough to gain a measure of knowledge, skills and understanding on which to build confident, healthy, independent lives.
We recognise the importance of the role of PSHE in helping our children really understand themselves and others. Through the positive work we do in this area, we feel that we are equipping our children with the knowledge and skills to prepare them for life, not only within our school community, but also in the wider world.
Through our 1 Decision scheme, My Happymind scheme, theme days/weeks, circle time and their own experiences, the children are encouraged to explore their own worth in the school community and within their wider community. In doing so, the aim is for each individual to become increasingly responsible for their own actions and learning.
PSHE is embedded within all that we do at Holden Clough and is closely linked with our work in other areas of the curriculum. Through our approach we aim to help our children develop by increasing their confidence, helping them to keep safe, building on their sense of identity, developing their self-understanding as well as empathy for others, and by helping them to develop positive and productive relationships throughout their lives.
Thorough active participation and personal reflection, the children will learn to respect each other and understand our diversities and differences. Our aim at Holden Clough is to help and encourage all the children to form effective and fulfilling friendship both now and in the future.
PSHE has a strong link to SMSC an British Values . You can read more about these areas on the curriculum web page.
We all wore odd socks to start our Friendship Week off and showed them off during our Anti-Bullying Week assembly. We focussed on this years theme 'Change starts with us' and how we can make changes for the better.
Thank you to Janvi Patel for writing this Anti-bullying poem at home and sharing it with us.
We enjoyed our mindfulness sessions with Ali and Deb from Mind who have been working with our School Council this year.
Miss Lynch led yoga sessions for the whole school which we all enjoyed during our mindfulness day.
