INTENT OF PSHE EDUCATION (HRE)
At St Peter’s we continuously strive to live our school mission statement through all actions, thoughts
‘Christ is at the heart of our school community; through loving, living and learning together, we all grow
as the person God wants us to be.’
We place Christ firmly at the foundation of the entire learning process. We believe that PSHE and
Citizenship are central to the educational entitlement of all children and permeates all aspects of school
life. PSHE enables our children to grow to become healthy, independent and responsible members of
society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially and tackles
many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with
opportunities to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member
of a diverse society. We encourage our children to ask questions, think, adapt, and overcome barriers.
Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in
contributing to school life and the wider community.
