Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) Education
To enable all children to LIVE in and understand the ever changing world. To develop the skills necessary to take an active role in their community and manage their life effectively.
To LOVE themselves and others and to show respect for religious and moral values. To show an appreciation and tolerance of other groups, races, religions, ways of life and points of view, whatever their age, ability, background, gender or special need.
To strive to LEARN and be self-motivated to achieve their very best. To be independent and determined to reach their full potential.
Through the PSHE curriculum at OLOL, pupils develop the skills, attributes and knowledge they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and prepare for life in modern Britain.
Pupils at OLOL are taught how to keep themselves safe. They participate in road safety workshops, cycling safety courses, drugs awareness workshops, e-safety week, Enterprise week and that is just to name a few.
Our weekly Collective Worship focuses on a range of topics which are linked to the Gospel Values. This ensures that the children at OLOL have time to think and reflect on how different issues impact on our world and how we can go forth to make it better.
The PSHE Curriculum
The PSHE curriculum aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, teamworking and critical thinking in the context of learning grouped into three core themes:
- health and wellbeing,
- living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education).
