PCHSE (PERSONAL, CITIZENSHIP, HEALTH, & SOCIAL EDUCATION)

A programme of personal and social education is taught to all year groups from the Nursery upwards. Some of the topics included in the programme are:

  • Personal safety
  • Pedestrian training
  • Travel to School
  • People who help us
  • Drug Awareness
  • Dangerous substances
  • Citizenship  


Health Education

This area of the curriculum provides children with knowledge about their bodies, which will help them to develop positive attitudes, and make responsible decisions in their lives. Children learn about healthy living, the importance of diet and exercise and the risks involved in the use of harmful substances. The school has a drug awareness policy. The governors have also agreed a sex education policy. Some aspects of sex education are discussed in a sensitive, honest and appropriate way as and when they arise. Older children are taught more specifically in the context of the science curriculum. We select teaching materials, TV programmes and videos, which are appropriate to the needs and maturity of the children concerned. Parents are informed when sex education will be part of their topic work and have the right to withdraw their children from these lessons if they so wish. Please see the Head teacher if you wish to discuss this further.
