Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Citizenship at Oakdale Primary School help enable children to create and develop positive, respectful relationships with their peers.  Equally vital is the need to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding that children need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens. Such skills are linked to effective learning and performing in a socially acceptable way. As such, they are fundamental to school well-being and improvement.  At Oakdale Primary School believe that PSHE underpins all other aspects of children’s learning as it enables them to become responsible, resilient, and life-long learners.

Oakdale has shared values and common expectations of children’s personal development and social interaction.  Adults are role models and children should be treated with respect by adults and fulfil the behaviour expectations outlined in the behaviour policy.

Modules covered include:

  • Feelings and Relationships
  • Healthy and Safer Lifestyles
