PSHE teaching at Nether Green covers a broad range of issues and topics concerned with children’s well being and their developing relationship with the world around them. Topics covered include units of work such as ‘Myself’ (raising self-esteem) in Y3 and ‘Drugs Awareness’ in Y6. PSHE aims to provide learning situations in which children can consider knowledge, attitudes and beliefs which connect with their personal/social lives and to develop skills which will equip them to be responsible, happy and healthy members of society. In addition to class teaching (usually done in circle time) two other aspects of PSHE are the whole school project ‘Health Week’ and the pupils’ School Council which takes suggestions from and gives feedback to every class. Sex education is taught as part of our PSHE and science work. Parents/carers may choose to opt out of these sessions and should make an appointment with the class teacher if they wish to do so.
