Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) helps to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to develop as confident, healthy and independent individuals.

PSHE lessons at Bentley help to promote physical and emotional well-being for all our children. Our planning for PSHE covers emotional health and wellbeing, sex and relationship education, drug, tobacco and alcohol education, bullying and citizenship, at a level appropriate to the children’s age. At Bentley we promote British values and prepare children for life in modern Britain; through PSHE and across the curriculum, children explore democracy, rights and responsibilities, respect and tolerance of those of different faiths, beliefs and opinions.

A wealth of enrichment activities further support and complement our PSHE curriculum. These include residential trips, school visits, community events, sports, arts and music clubs and events. Targeted nurture groups and 1:1 ELSA sessions support individuals and small groups who need additional support.

Personal and Social skills are at the heart of our school values and are the focus of school assemblies, class behaviour reward systems and Gold Bookawards. Children are actively involved in making decisions and discussing issues surrounding their health, friendships and wellbeing through the SchoolCouncil and other pupil voice activities.

PSHE is one of the many ways in which we support the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development of our children.
