PSHE Vision Statement

PSHE at Linton Mead sets learning within real-life contexts that affect our children.  It is embedded in all areas of the curriculum and is set within a healthy, citizenship-rich, extended and sustainable school. All members of the Linton Mead community model the behaviors and values that enrich and reinforce those taught through a cross-curricular approach.

We ensure children are made aware of their rights and responsibilities as citizens through the British values of democracy, liberty, the rule of law, respect and tolerance.  We develop attitudes, values and an understanding that will enable our children to become responsible members of society.

This enables children to make informed decisions and take opportunities that will help them to live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives, and develop a strong sense of citizenship within the community both now and in the future.

The PSHE Association has adapted the PSHE skills into three core themes – Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World.  Within these themes there are sub-themes.  Detailed in this document are the ways in which the children at Linton Mead learn about the core themes within the PSHE curriculum.
