Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education
SMSC Quality Mark - Silver
PHSE at Linaker.
At Linaker we are always looking for opportunities to include our Linaker Values, PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) and SMSC(Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural) in lessons and throughout the day. Physical, Social, Health and Emotional education is provided at Linaker through both dedicated lessons and assemblies. We use the 1Decision scheme to structure our curriculum and progression so that pupils have the opportunity to hear about, share and respond to the widest possible range of issues as they develop and mature. An outline curriculum is available below.
“PSHE education equips children and young people with knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive, fulfilled, capable and responsible lives. It encourages them to be enterprising and supports them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in managing their finances effectively. PSHE education also enables children and young people to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes, and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future”.
