Personal, social, health and citizenship education (PSHCE) is a carefully planned programme of learning opportunities and experiences that enable children to grow and develop as individuals and as valuable members of the community. This directly impacts upon the SMSC (Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural) development of our children.

PSHCE at Hunwick Primary provides our children with knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive, capable and responsible lives in modern Britain.  It also gives our children the skills to reflect on and analyse their own values and equips them to face difficult and sometimes conflicting attitudes they may face in the future.

Specific PSHCE lessons are incorporated within the school timetable, as well as aspects and concept being interwoven across all areas of the curriculum and structured assemblies. Effective teaching also engages with issues arising in current affairs as well as identifying whole school and class related opportunities to celebrate diversity and promote mutual respect and tolerance.

Each half term, each class has an additional equality and diversity focus, which is explored through meaningful links within their topic. For example the topics of immigration, discrimination and prejudice are all areas investigated during class topics.
