PHSE Intent

Research shows that children who are emotionally healthy do better at school.

We want our pupils to have happy and successful futures and our PSHE curriculum aims to present pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead healthy, confident, safe and independent lives.

Pupils experience weekly PSHE lessons and PSHE topics are frequently visited in assemblies, but most importantly, personal, social and health education  permeates every aspect of school life at Glade Academy.

PSHE lessons present pupils with the opportunity for open and honest discussions about issues that will affect them now and in the future. A broad range of topics are covered including facing new challenges, setting and achieving goals, being resilient, relationships, conflict, bullying and changes. Pupils are empowered to speak and ask questions about their thoughts and feelings in a safe and nurturing environment.  PSHE will challenge preconceived thoughts and opinions in a positive and proactive way that permits pupils to form and understand their own views. Through a range of activities and discussions, pupils learn to recognise their own worth, to engage well with others, and to become increasingly responsible for their own actions and learning.  Pupils will reflect on their own experiences of developing personally and physically and will consider morality, spirituality, and the diverse society in which they live.
