Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)
PSHE education is a curriculum subject in England that helps children and young people stay healthy, safe and prepared for life – and work – in modern Britain. When taught well, PSHE education also helps pupils to achieve their academic potential.
We last consulted parents regarding our PSHE curriculum during the pandemic, however we want to ensure that parents are fully informed about the aims and content of our PSHE curriculum. Please see below for our curriculum overview for PSHE - this provides parents with an outline of the themes that children will study at Harrison.
Later in the term, Alex Bord, our PSHE lead, will be consulting with parents about our PSHE curriculum - please look out for further information after half term.
School council members

ROTARY CHRISTMAS SHOEBOX APPEAL
We are pleased that our school is once again participating in this annual scheme which sends shoeboxes containing toys and gifts to disadvantaged children in foreign countries. The focus again this year is sending Christmas gifts to Ukrainian children who have been displaced by the current conflict. A leaflet will be sent home with full details including a label to attach to the shoebox.
We have been asked to use the flat pack boxes which have been provided and these can be collected from the school office or by emailing email@example.com.
Please could all shoeboxes be bought in to school on Friday 3rd November.
