     PSHE and RHE


PSHE is central to the ethos of The Berkeley Academy.  Children need self-awareness, positive self-esteem and confidence to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to lead confident, healthy, independent lives.  The school is committed to promoting healthy lifestyles and is part of the Healthy Schools initiative.



For children to learn how to:

  • develop as responsible individuals with a respect and understanding of the needs of others;
  • contribute to the daily life of the school and participate in the decision making process;
  • develop confidence in themselves as individuals able to express thoughts and feelings;
  • develop as spiritually aware, happy individuals with a respect and understanding of the world around them;
  • develop physically with an understanding of how to live healthy lives;
  • and develop awareness and understanding of our own and other cultures.

We loved learning all about our amazing bodies and how we can keep them healthy. We have learnt the proper names of our body parts. we learnt why it is important to recognise that our bodies belong to us and no one else.

Children had a visit from PCSO Lorraine Meggs, who spoke about the significance of The Knife Angel. She was very impressed with the quality of questions and the interest children had in how to stay safe and keep others safe. There were some in depth discussions around a number of scenarios and children showed great maturity and insight.
