Personal, Social & Health Education
PSHE is an important area of the ISM curriculum that helps children grow and develop into strong individuals and members of society. Through PSHE, students develop the skills and attitudes they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives as responsible citizens.
Students are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences. These include community action initiatives, which support local charities and initiatives, as well as the UNICEF Sustainable Development Goals.
Students learn to reflect on their personal growth, as they tackle many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. They learn to understand and respect our common humanity so that they can form effective, fulfilling relationships as a secure individual.
Through science, students understand how major scientific ideas contribute to technological change, impacting on many areas of life. Students are taught to utilise the scientific process by asking simple questions, performing fair experiments, making observations, presenting data, and using evidence to draw conclusions.
As they progress through Primary School, the children develop a deep understanding of a wide range of scientific ideas. Through their studies, students begin to recognise how scientific ideas are challenged and develop over time.
