Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education at Rush Common is about making sure that children are prepared for the world, teaching them life skills and helping them apply the knowledge and understanding they learn in all subjects to real life situations. We follow a well known and comprehensive scheme of work known as SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) which is taught in discrete age-appropriate PSHE lessons throughout the school. Its themes are New Beginnings, Getting On and Falling Out, Going for Goals, Good to Be Me, Changes, Relationships and Say No to Bullying.
Accompanying these are Assemblies programme and our Values curriculum which are detailed elsewhere on this website / page. Also detailed elsewhere is our commitment to SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) provision and the education of the children in British Modern Values.
Through all this the children are helped to understand themselves, others and their environment better, preparing them for the challenges and opportunities of adult life whilst helping them achieve their academic potential.
