At Sheen Mount we want to provide all children with the accurate and relevant knowledge that they can turn into personal understanding. We give children opportunities to explore, clarify and challenge their own and others’ values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities. We help them to develop emotional literacy, supporting them to become emotionally intelligent individuals who are able to deal with the challenges of modern life. We teach them the skills, language and strategies to become self-aware and confident, to establish and maintain effective relationships and to have the resilience to persevere and overcome personal, social and emotional, as well as academic, challenges. This will help them to live healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced lives.
PSHE is taught both through our PSHE lesson in class and our weekly Living Values assemblies. One assembly for Years 1, 2 and 3 and one assembly for Years 4, 5 and 6. Each half term, a Living Values Postcard is sent out to one child in each class who has demonstrated the Living Value particularly well.
