PSHE

“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose in life is to give it away.”

Pablo Picasso

 

At St Gerard's, we aim to provide a rich, broad and well-balanced curriculum for all children. Our whole-school approach to personal, social, health and economic well-being (PSHE), works to ensure that every child has the opportunity to build upon their skills, so that they can achieve their full potential, both academically and socially.

We have a strong sense of community in our school and pride ourselves on our values. Our PSHE policy is guided by the values of: 

  • Honesty 

  • Kindness

  • Trust

  • Responsibility 

  • Friendship

  • Self-control

  • Empathy and tolerance 

  • Respect. 

 

The aims of PSHE are:

• to give pupils the knowledge and develop the self-esteem, confidence and self-awareness to make informed choices and decisions;

• to encourage and support the development of social skills and social awareness;

• to enable pupils to make sense of their own personal and social experiences;

• to promote responsible attitudes towards the maintenance of good physical and mental health, supported by a safe and healthy lifestyle;

• to enable effective interpersonal relationships and develop a caring attitude towards others;

• to encourage a caring attitude towards and responsibility for the environment;

• to help our pupils understand and manage their feelings; to build resilience and be independent, curious problem solvers

• to understand how society works and the laws, rights and responsibilities involved.

 

Over the last year, our school has continued to support many different charities, both locally and globally. These charities include; CAFOD, Halton Hospice and Fairtrade.
