We took part in ‘Odd Socks Day’ during Anti-Bullying Week to celebrate what makes us all unique!

We made pledges to do what we can to put an end to bullying!

Here is some of the art work we created during Anti-Bullying Week!

We all took part in a Yoga Day recently.




Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is essential to help children develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.  By following the Safety, caring, achievement, resilience, friendship (SCARF) programme, we aim to develop the characteristics our pupils need to thrive as individuals, as part of a family and as a confident member of the wider community.

PSHE education helps pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepared for life – and work – in modern Britain.  Pupils are given opportunities to consider and clarify their values and beliefs.  We aim for our children to be able to express their views whilst remaining tolerant and understanding of others.

We want to equip our children with the information they need to make the right choices and know how to deal with issues such as bullying, their changing bodies and peer pressure.  From making responsible decisions about alcohol, to succeeding in their first job, PSHE education helps pupils to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up.  Our pupils will learn where to go for help and will foster healthy relationships, know their rights and responsibilities, contribute to the community and be ‘the best that we can be.’

We use SCARF to teach our PSHE within school and the statutory RSHE requirements are taught within these lessons. The same topics are taught each year, building on what the children have already learnt and introducing new, age-appropriate themes. At the start of each half term, each child receives a knowledge organiser with the key points for that topic. They also complete a pre-unit assessment so the class teacher is aware of what the children already know and what areas might need more work. The same assessment is completed at the end so the children can reflect on all their new learning.
