The National Curriculum states that, "every school must offer a curriculum which: promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, and prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences for later life".
PSHCE deals directly with the diverse values, beliefs and attitudes of individuals and society. It helps pupils acquire the attitudes and values which are necessary so they can make sense of their experiences, value themselves and respect others, appreciate difference and diversity and feel confident and informed.
