Personal, Social, Health Citizens Education (PSHCE) at Trinity School
PSHCE education is at the heart of everything we do at Trinity to ensure that every child feels safe, cared for and valued in a positive environment which enables them to thrive. At Trinity, our priority is every child’s happiness and well-being. We want all children to be happy and to feel part of our Trinity family. PSHCE education incorporates physical health, including healthy lifestyles and first aid. Healthy relationships, mental health and well-being also forms part of PSHCE education.
Our Personalised Curriculum
At Trinity, PSHCE is taught through a personalised curriculum that is carefully tailored to meet the needs of our children. Our Curriculum Drivers - Aspirations, Health and Well Being, Diversity - are embedded in the teaching of PSHCE. We celebrate the diverse nature of Britain and reinforce fundamental British values. In all classes, we use provide explorative lessons which promote discussion and debate where children learn the vocabulary needed to speak and write in a way that enables them to communicate their ideas and opinions.
Online Safety features strongly in the teaching and learning of PSHCE. We educate our children on how to stay safe online and where to go to for help should they need it. We recognise that social media is a huge part of children’s lives. Therefore, we address issues surrounding online activity and teach children what to do if they are presented with negative experiences online which may include cyber bullying, body image or being asked about personal information.
Metacognition also forms part of PSHCE education at Trinity. We teach children to believe that they can achieve their goals, both academic and personal. We give children the tools they need to recover from setbacks and challenging periods in their lives. We help them develop self-esteem and a positive attitude of themselves alongside nurturing personal attributes including kindness, integrity, generosity, and honesty which we believe at Trinity is key in enabling all children to develop the resilience and character they need to become happy, successful and productive members of our community and society.
