Personal, Socail and Health Education


To provide all children with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their potential as individuals within a community.

To encourage all children to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning.

To enable children to tackle spiritual, moral and cultural issues that are part of growing up.


For children to reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially.
