As a school, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education. This gives children the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, in line with recent changes made by the Department of Education.
The guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships.
Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up will give children the skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and help them take responsibility for their own well-being.
Our PHSE curriculum is based on the Islington scheme- You, Me and PHSE and is supplemented by resources from other organisations which include the PHSE Association and NSPCC.

Curriculum - PSHE - Emotions (Mental Health Week)
We have looked at different emotions in PSHE as part of Mental Health Week. Children discussed different emotions and how they feel in different situations. We then discussed how people can receive help and support.
In groups, we then worked on completing an emotions chart where different scenarios were looked at: the behaviour, thoughts and actions taken. Children enjoyed the opportunity to talk about their own experiences too. A grown up attitude - well done!
Curriculum - PSHE - Police Visit
Our pupils have had a visit from the police. They gave us advice on keeping safe around fire and fireworks leading up to bonfire night and also told us about all the different jobs they do and how they help people. We learned about how we can stay safe and people who help to keep us safe.
Curriculum - PSHE - Rachel Reeves Visit
We recently had a visit from MP Rachel Reeves. Children got the opportunity to find out what an MP does and ask questions about her job.
