Developing children’s personal and social skills, understanding of relationships and ensuring their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing is central to our ethos as a school. We teach the PSHE curriculum in a variety of ways including:

Whole school assembly themes – these are reinforced in assemblies in the hall and in class throughout the week.  They cover themes such as: honesty, putting yourself in someone else’s shoes, anti-bullying, wisdom, friendship, achieving our goals, taking risks, perseverance, independence, etc.

PSHE sessions is class – these may take the form of games, circle time, discussions or debates or may cover specific aspects such as road safety including sessions from the police and fire brigade, puberty, cycle safety, dental health or the world of work.

Life Education Bus – all children have a half-day session on the Life Education Bus each year. Children learn about medicines and drugs, keeping their bodies healthy and peer pressure in fun interactive sessions on the bus.

Our PSHE curriculum is taught in a structured way but it also underpins everything we do so much of our PSHE work is incidental and is conveyed in the many conversations and lessons we do with the children each and every day.  Fundamental to our school ethos is the way in which the children interact with each other and the values and skills that they develop for themselves so these are woven through all aspects of school life and reinforced by all adults in school.
