Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education

Children are encouraged to be independent, self-disciplined and self-motivated

members of our school community. The pastoral care of pupils is normally the

responsibility of the class teacher, with the support of the Headteacher and

Assistant Headteachers. We have an active PSHEE Policy that is continually

being updated; celebrating the high importance we give to the pastoral care

and well-being of our children.


The PSHEE scheme identifies opportunities within every curriculum area. Positive attitudes such as cooperation, politeness and thought for others are explored and encouraged for the benefit of everyone, not just the individual so that we may all enjoy a happy working environment. Citizenship issues are addressed as they arise, and in key stage assemblies. We are proud that our work in this area has been recognised with the achievement of ‘Healthy Schools Standard’.


School Council

From Year 1 upwards, each class has a class council. Representatives come to School Council which is involved in school decisions and has an agenda ‘to make school better’. To see our School Council Page click here!

‘The good thing is that the pupils get to have a say on what the school is like’ (Y6 pupil).


Behaviour

We encourage a positive approach to behaviour. Children in Key Stage 2 work for ‘Smiley Awards’, which can be won for effort in work and behaviour. Children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 are awarded Rainbow certificates. ‘In addition, each class teacher can nominate a ‘Star of the week’ for a range of reasons. There is also a ‘Playground Star’ nominated by lunchtime supervisors. We celebrate these successes in a ‘Well done’ Assembly each Friday to which parents are always invited. All adults in school take part in giving the rewards.

The Behaviour Policy was developed in consultation with pupils parents to promote good behaviour and counteract bullying. All classes hold ‘Circle Time’ following a personal and social development programme dependent on the time of year.
