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. Our pupils are given opportunities in lessons and assemblies to explore PSHE/ British Values lessons to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society. 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.
The Governors statement of sex education in this school is that “part of the Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) of this school will include sex education”. Formal sex education is offered to Y6 children after written notification to parents/guardians. Individual’s questions are dealt with in an honest and understanding way, as sensible caring parents would deal with their own children.
