At Copenhagen Primary School Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education and citizenship education are both planned parts of the school curriculum that will also be reflected through the whole school experience. They equip pupils with knowledge, understanding, and skills and help them to explore and develop attitudes and values.
PSHE education supports the development of personal, social and life skills: the identification of and dealing with emotions and feelings, exploring health-related issues, understanding about oneself, relationships with others and one’s place in the world, learning about managing finances, the world of work and planning for the future. It supports pupils to lead healthy, safe, fulfilled, and responsible lives.
Citizenship education prepares pupils for the social and moral responsibilities of community involvement: the understanding of democracy and justice, rights and responsibilities and exploring identities and diversity. It helps them develop political literacy and to become informed, critical, active citizens who have the skills, confidence and conviction to advocate, take action and try to make a difference in their local, national and global communities.
