PSHE

Lead teacher - Mrs Fensom

Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) is a subject which teachers use to address class and community specific issues; staff hold a discrete circle time each week to discuss relevant topics.

Our Values education supports PSHE throughout all subjects including assembly and play times. It is a key theme in assembly and at least one assembly a week is dedicated to it. There is a different Value chosen as a focus for each month

Mrs De Greeve has completed extensive training on Anti-bullying and Mindfulness and she offers Being Different, Being Together workshops in Key Stage 2. Through drama, dance, music and discussion, the children are encouraged to take pride in themselves as unique individuals. The importance of respecting other people’s differences is emphasised and reinforces the message that we are all special, regardless of race, gender, religion, appearance, character and background.

Sex and relationships education is taught during the school year with the focus on understanding relationships and how our body and feelings change as we get older. We endeavour to answer children’s questions as honestly as possible.
