PSHE Intent at Baxenden St John’s

At Baxenden St John’s, the physical and emotional wellbeing of our children is a priority. Our PSHE curriculum is taught in a variety of ways through our school ethos, whole school assemblies, Religious Education lessons and our PSHE scheme of work. Our curriculum aims to help children understand how they are developing personally and socially which helps them to tackle social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We aim to encourage our children to develop their self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

PSHE takes place weekly in each class and is carefully planned to involve a range of activities including circle times, stories, games and drama.
