Statement for PSHCE

At Thames View Primary School, PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Cultural Education) empowers our children to focus on their physical and mental health, as well as becoming responsible members of a community and the wider society. They will explore a range of social and moral issues that are part of growing up. Throughout the school, we promote an open environment where all opinions are shared and respected equally about these issues. As a school, we ensure that lessons are age-appropriate and within the guidelines of the National Curriculum and PSHE association.


Our PSHCE curriculum enables the children to develop the following skills;



- Learning how to recognise and express range of emotions

- Identify differences and similarities between people (including physical differences)

- Understanding difference between teasing and bullying

- Exploring situations that feel safe or unsafe

- Begin to identify problem within the school and environment and suggest improvements
