Personal, Social and Health Education
At Byron Wood Academy we believe that Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is a crucial part of all our children’s development.
PSHE is taught in class based lessons, including specific RSE lessons, and is developed through assemblies. It focuses on developing children’s respect for themselves and others, increasing self discipline and independence.
As part of our work on developing a healthy and safe life style, children learn about themselves, how their body works, and how to stay healthy. Where appropriate outside agencies e.g. dentist, police, school nurse are invited to talk to the children.
Our Health Education also includes work on medicines and drugs. Younger children learn about safety issues with medicines and older children are as well informed as possible about the dangers of drug abuse and the implications for their health and safety.
