The Divine Mercy RC Primary School - PSHE Curriculum Intent
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” (Psalm 119:105)
At The Divine Mercy we reflect the National Curriculum aims:
At The Divine Mercy, in PSHE, learning is a sacred experience, we make Christ known and provide opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident and successful learners. Our children have high aspirations and they know how to make a positive and transformational contribution to their community and wider society.
PHSE teaching and learning is rooted in the principles of Catholic Social Teaching (inspired by the example of Pope Francis). In PSHE we raise aspirations and engender a sense of personal pride in achievement. We provide a purpose and relevance for learning in order to ultimately help every student to find their gifts, talents, strengths and interests.
We encourage all pupils to respect each other and have respect for themselves and the environment. Our children have respect for people of all faiths, race and gender, and we ensure that our children are well prepared for life in a rapidly changing world.
Our children are advocates for social justice who are adaptable to any social context.
