"There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness."
- Dalai Lama
At Christchurch we support children on their journey towards self-understanding as growing individuals. PSHE encourages children to develop empathy, think about the impact of their choices and actions on other children, on the local community and the global environment. It is integral in all aspects of school life and is underpinned by strong Christian values and daily collective worship. PSHE helps children to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to manage their lives now and in the future. Children have the opportunity to explore their feelings and how to deal with different situations in a safe and structured environment. Through discussion in Circle Time the children will develop their skills in critical thinking and problem solving. In various cross curricular activities, the children will focus on topical issues in everyday life. This will be done under various themes such as Sustainability, Values, Diversity and Cohesion, Friendship and Care, Giving, Global Issues, Keeping Safe, Making a contribution, Money and Rights and Responsibilities. We aim to provide children with the skills to become independent, confident and well-rounded citizens in an increasingly demanding world with skills to manage their lives now and in the future. PSHE encourages ALL children to achieve their fullest potential.
