PSHE and Citizenship
Our main PSHE teaching is focused in a whole school PSHE week each term:
Autumn term: positive relationships and diversity,
Spring term: keeping healthy and safe
Summer term: living in the wider community.
Throughout these weeks there is a high focus on ensuring children learn how to be safe in different situations, as well on global citizenship, sustainable development and British values. Each of these weeks is enriched and brought to life through several workshops (e.g. from the police, fire brigade, NSPCC) and visits (e.g. to Waitrose cookery school, Houses of Parliament). Building PSHE skills in areas such as relationships, friendships and problem solving continues throughout the year, including through circle times and class discussions and our annual anti-bullying focus. Our RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) teaching is part of PSHE and Science teaching across the school with a particular focus and associated parent workshop in Year 5 in the Summer term (under review in 2019/20).
We hold a National Well-being Award for Schools recognising our work in supporting children’s emotional well-being and mental health and a current Healthy Schools Silver accreditation.
