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 also took part in Wellbeing Week whilst we were learning at home during the Covid-19 school closures.

PSHE

 

Vision

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.’
