"The work that has been carried out to ensure that the PSHE curriculum is broad, balanced and needs led. PSHE has a high profile in school and is very well led and managed by a passionate and experienced PSHE lead. Regular monitoring ensures that the pupils are developing the knowledge and skills set out in the curriculum. Pupil voice plays an important role in influencing the curriculum through the effective use of the My Health, My School survey data and pupil interviews. The curriculum is carefully designed to ensure it meets the statutory guidance as well as meeting the needs of the school community. For example, additional work on rail safety is incorporated into the curriculum to safeguard children as the local railway line has been identified as a safety hotspot. The PSHE lead utilises every possible opportunity to embed children’s learning and provide real life experiences. The local park is used regularly for physical activity sessions and therefore pupils are taught how to stay safe when using their local park, both inside and outside of the school day. Following their rail safety workshop in Year 5, Year 6 were able to put their learning into practice when travelling, by train, to their residential. Strong relationships with Community Rail meant that, not only was the travel free of charge, reducing the cost of the residential, but the same staff member accompanied the pupils to reinforce their learning. This is one example of many different links with outside agencies and the benefits these bring to the pupils. Pupils clearly value PSHE lessons and understand their importance."

PSHE is about making connections and is strongly linked to play, PSHE is taught through activities that are part of topics and experiences, as well as on an individual basis to develop personal skills such as dressing, feeding and toileting. Positive experiences are built through daily opportunities to share and enjoy a range of activities, as members of a small group or occasionally during whole school activities.
