At Highfield Farm Primary School PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) is a planned program of learning where the children acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to keep themselves healthy and safe. PSHE provides the children with the building blocks in order for them to develop healthy, respectful relationships, focusing on family and friendships, in all contexts, including online. This sits alongside the essential understanding of how to be healthy. As part of our whole school approach, PSHE develops the qualities and attributes that children need to manage opportunities, challenges and responsibilities as they grow up, enabling them to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
By teaching pupils to stay safe and healthy, and by building self-esteem, resilience and empathy, our effective PSHE program enables staff to tackle barriers to learning and raise aspirations for our pupils. It also enables our children to develop an understanding of the emerging challenges they face currently living in Highfield Farm including dealing with the Covid pandemic and associated grief and mental health issues along with the high level of poverty and deprivation within Rotherham.
