Personal, social and health education

Personal, social, health, citizenship and economic education is a carefully planned programme of learning opportunities and experiences that enable children and young people to grow and develop as individuals and as valuable members of families and of social and economic communities.

Personal, social and health education provides children and young people with knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive, fulfilled, capable and responsible lives. It inspires them to be enterprising and supports them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in managing their finances effectively. It gives children and young people 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.

At Mullion Primary's opportunities for learning in this subject are split into nine areas as outlined in the Lancashire Primary Phase Scheme of Work, they are: Core skills, Making a positive contribution, economic well-being, relationships, emotional health and well being, keeping safe, healthy lifestyles, drug awareness and sex and relationships education.
