PSHCE

  • The aim of our PSHCE curriculum is to extend learning beyond the academic, technical or vocational, supporting our children to develop their character – including their resilience, confidence and independence – and help them know how to keep physically and mentally healthy and safe. We aim to ensure that at each stage of education, we prepare children for future success through planned transition. By developing their understanding of the school’s core values as well as of British values, we will strive to prepare our children for life in modern Britain: we will equip them to be responsible, respectful, active citizens who contribute positively to society.

    Our school places great emphasis on developing pupils’ understanding of SMSC (social, moral, spiritual and cultural awareness) and places great importance on raising children’s self-esteem and confidence, as well as teaching them how to stay safe and healthy, including being e-safe. 

    We use projects in Year 3 and Year 4 such as Roots of Empathy and Young Leaders to reinforce British values and our school core values.  Older children in Year 5 and Year 6 receive a tailored programme of SRE (Sex and Relationship Education) which is delivered by teachers and the school nurse service.  Parents have the right to withdraw their children from SRE but this rarely happens.  Teachers take into consideration the age and maturity of the children concerned and have due regard to moral considerations and the value of family life.
