Personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE Ed) encourages children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of our society. Airthrie takes into account the demands that young people experience with 24 hour technology and its objective is to teach them skills to enable them to recognise, handle and become resilient to these pressures. We encourage our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community through Forest fundraising.
Every class has a weekly session which encompasses one of the main themes, namely:
British values are actively promoted throughout the school and embedded within the PSHE Ed programme of study to ensure pupils are prepared for life in modern Britain.
Pupils are given a balanced presentation of the world in which they in. This precludes the promotion of partisan political views in the teaching of any subject in the school and takes such steps as are reasonably practicable to ensure that where political issues are brought to the attention of pupils they are offered a balanced presentation of opposing views. Pupils are taught to respect the rights of others and to respect those with different beliefs.
