Personal Social Education
Year 1 to Year 6
Personal and Social Education provides students with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to be healthy, confident and independent.
PSE is an essential part of the curriculum and, as students engage with it across and between the disciplines, they come to a deeper understanding of its relevance and applicability to their everyday lives. Appropriate attitudes and behaviours are also modelled within the school and the school community. PSE promotes trans-disciplinary learning through trans-disciplinary themes, the learner profile and the essential elements of the PYP programme. Making The PYP Happen 2007
At the International School of Lausanne our Personal and Social Education (PSE) curriculum is carefully planned to include the opportunity to bring current and personal issues into the curriculum. Our PSE curriculum aims to provide opportunities for students to:
- reflect on their own personal and social development
- recognise the commonalities and differences in personal and social development, both in their peers and in others around the world
- develop a suitable vocabulary to deal with the issues and relationships they will encounter
- approach new and sometimes challenging situations within a safe environment
It offers learning opportunities across the curriculum, within our Units of Inquiry and in assemblies, specific lessons, circle time, field trips and visits and other special school projects.
