Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship Education

This area of learning runs through our curriculum and everyday school life. 

These are the aspects we will focus on in each term: 

 

Autumn

New Beginnings:

  • Understanding the feelings of others – I know how others may be feeling when they are in an unfamiliar situation and can help them to feel valued and welcomed.
  • Making choices – I can explain how I go about solving a problem and can give you an example of a problem I have solved.
  • Belonging – I know that I am valued at school.
  • Understanding my feelings – I understand how it feels to do or start something new, and why.
  • Social skills – I can work well in a group and can tell you what helps my group to work well together.
  • Understanding rights and responsibilities –  I understand my rights and responsibilities in the school. I know some of the things that help us in school to learn and play well together. I understand the need for rules in society and why we have the rules we do in school. If I don’t agree with something in school, I know how to go about trying to change things.
