As a school we dedicate a huge amount of time developing our PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) skills. When our pupils leave us at the end of year 6 we want them to be mentally, emotionally and socially ready for the next part of their education. We also hope that they have developed a full range of skills and a moral compass that will stay with them throughout their life. There is a dedicated session in our weekly timetables and issues are discussed as they arise. We have whole class discussions and circle times. There are also visitors that come into school to help us deliver the curriculum. We have just purchased a new scheme of work which we will be implementing in September 2017. Along with this we have CHIPS (Challenging Homophobia in Primary School) materials and deliver BLAST sessions to our older children. We are working towards achieving Healthy Schools level one and generally encouraging our children to be mentally well and as fit and physically active as they can be so they develop good habits from an early age.
We also have a range of visitors to help us deliver PSHE in school - they work alongside the class teachers so support the delivery of this important aspect of our curriculum.
