PSHE plays an integral part in school life. We aim to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through our school council, fundraising events and involvement in community activities. We encourage ownership and responsibility by providing the children with purposeful roles within the school. Pupils in Year 5 and Year 6 are responsible for running the daily break time Tuckshop and looking after playground equipment for their peers. Year 6 pupils also take on the role of Road Safety Officers.
Our pupils are given opportunities in PSHE lessons and assemblies to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society. PSHE is taught throughout the school in a range of contexts. Children learn through designated PSHE sessions, including circle time and worship when a variety of issues are explored and discussed. Cross-curricular opportunities for personal and social development are also planned. Across the school, positive attitudes and values are developed in day-to-day interactions and activities. PSHE teaching and activities are planned with due regard to children’s age and stage of development.
