PSHE Policy

Ambergate Primary School

Incorporating citizenship

“PSHE comprises all aspects of schools’ planned provision to promote their children’s personal and social development including health and well – being”

(Preparing young people for adult life DfEE 1999)


The PSHE curriculum delivered at Ambergate Primary School reflects the school’s aims as it develops the children’s confidence, self esteem and awareness to;

  • Make the most of their abilities
  • Play an active role as citizens
  • Develop good relationships and respect the difference between people
  • Develop a safe and healthy life style
  • Become increasingly independent and responsible.                                                                                               


Education for citizenship at key stage 1 and includes:

Social and moral responsibility; Pupils learning from the very beginning self-confidence and socially and morally responsible behaviour both in and beyond the classroom, towards those in authority and towards each other.


Community involvement: “Pupils learning about the institutions, issues problems and practices of our democracy and how citizens can make themselves effective in public life, locally, regionally and nationally through skills and values as well as knowledge- this can be termed political literacy, which encompasses more than political knowledge alone.”

(PSHE guidance 2000 QCA)
