At Great Kimble we ensure that PSHE, alongside our Christian Values (Respect, Thankfulness, Endurance, Forgiveness, Love and Hope), creates the backbone to the whole curriculum. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of responsibility by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community. We provide a programme of study which helps develop our children’s health and wellbeing, relationships and their ability to make positive contributions to the wider world.
The aim of our PSHE is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child. As a result of this they will become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society, who understand how they are developing personally and socially. It will give them the confidence to tackle many of the moral, social, spiritual and cultural issues that are part of growing up and are essential for all stages of their lives.
We recognise the importance of developing awareness of mental wellbeing and empathy across the school and in their community. We develop our children’s emotional intelligence and the ability to articulate their feelings in order to maintain good mental health as well as understanding the importance of their physical health and being healthy. At Great Kimble we promote a growth mindset strategy which enables our children to become resilient, flexible learners who develop a love for knowledge and a positive attitude towards the future.
We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community, now and throughout their lives.
