The PSHE and Citizenship curriculum runs through the school from Reception to Year 6 teaching social, emotional and behavioural skills.It is organised into seven themes which follow the SEAL (Social Emotional Aspects of Learning) Programme which provides a framework to support PSHE learning across the school. These themes are as follows:

  • New Beginnings
  • Getting On and Falling out
  • Respecting each other
  • Going for Goals
  • Good to be me
  • Relationships
  • Changes 

This subject covers a broad area of learning which includes the following:

Charity work

In so doing, we aim to create a caring environment and a positive attitude to behaviour which will provide children with a sound grounding to many years to come.
  • Children are encouraged to become independent and responsible in the areas of good hygiene, their dressing and appearance and good manners.

Buddy system

  • As part of our PSHE curriculum children in years 5 and 6 are frequently asked to be buddies to younger children in order to help with a range of activites inside and outside the classroom. The buddies also ensure that the younger children know at least one friendly face amongst the older children.

Cycling Proficiency

  • Years 5 and 6 take part in Level 1 and 2 cycling proficiency during school time.

The children learn through circle time, role play, visitors and every day events.
