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.

 

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