Personal, Social and Health Education.


Children develop their self esteem and confidence and recognise their place as a member of a family, a school and of the wider community. They are actively encouraged to develop a healthy life style and identify how they can keep themselves safe in the world around them. They are encouraged to respect the differences between people and develop an understanding of people’s feelings and attitudes.  They do this using a range of ‘SEAL’ activities (Social Emotional Aspect of Learning). The school also has a school council to promote and value children’s sense of belonging and responsibility.

We have a Drugs and Education programme and a Sex Education and Relationships Policy, suited to the needs of young children. If pupils raise questions on such issues they are dealt with sensitively and parents are informed if necessary. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact the PSHE co-coordinator through the school office.

The School is very proud to have achieved the National Award of Healthy Schools Status.
