At North Star 82°, we deliver at least one lesson of PSHE a week, with each term having a theme.  These will be linked to Health and Wellbeing, Relationships or Living in the Wider World. We also deliver lessons that celebrate National Awareness Days and weeks and these tie in with our Monday morning assemblies.

Through PSHE and Citizenship lessons, we plan to give children essential skills for life. We include the knowledge and skills children need to protect and develop their wellbeing. Children will learn how to stay safe and healthy, and build and keep successful relationships.  They develop the knowledge of when and how children can ask for help. We aim to help them become active citizens, who play a responsible part in society. Evidence shows that good PSHE education can help disadvantaged or vulnerable children by raising their hopes for themselves and by giving them skills to overcome any barriers they face.

Our teaching follows the PSHE Association Programme of Study which is recommended by the Department of Education. It includes lessons linked to the 2020 Relationships and Health Education, which all schools must deliver.
