At Osmotherley Primary School we take seriously our responsibility to "promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and prepare pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life" while having a duty to keep pupils safe. We believe that our PSHE curriculum helps pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. From making responsible decisions about alcohol to succeeding in their first job, PSHE education helps pupils to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up.
We recognise that, as a rural school, some pupils have limited opportunities to experience cultural diversity so we ensure that this is addressed fully in our curriculum. PSHE at Osmotherley School promotes diversity and helps children to express their own personal identity and culture.
