Personal, Social, Health Education makes a significant contribution to students’ personal development. Essentially it is about educating the whole student. The development of their personal and social skills is a fundamental aspect of education and underpins other learning, it gives young people the knowledge they need to grow and develop as individuals and members of society. PSHE education helps children and young people to build their personal identities, confidence, and self-esteem, make career choices and understand what influences their decisions including financial ones. Developing self-understanding, empathy, and the ability to work with others will help young people to enjoy healthy and productive relationships in all aspects of their lives. To lead a happy and independent life, children must develop their self-confidence and take care of their own health and wellbeing. They need to know not only their rights and responsibilities but those of others as well. We teach them to respect and value the richness and diversity of our British Society.
