PSHE

PSHE
Personal, Social, Health and Economic education.

As a school, we aim to meet the individual needs of each of our children to the best of our ability. With this is mind, our PSHE curriculum is planned to reflect universal needs and needs which are more specific to the children of our community. We feel that it is important for every child to revisit and reflect on their prior learning; in turn, building on their knowledge and understanding of health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. Through PSHE, we aim to provide the children with opportunities to learn and discuss Personal, Social, Health and Economic wellbeing – encouraging holistic development which will enable them to become well-equipped members of society.

Our long-term planning has been informed by the PSHE Association's guidelines which has been adapted to suit our curriculum. Please note that the summer term is subject to change as we will introduce the Christopher Winter Project which is the PSHE Association's approved programme for Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) in Luton.

Values-based Education (VbE)

Alongside our PSHE curriculum are our values which we implement and refer to on a daily basis. We feel that by doing this, it promotes a way of being that values the self, others and environment. The wide range of values that hold importance to the school have been chosen as we feel they are vital to developing self-awareness, relationships rooted with mutual respect and trust, academic diligence, communicative competence, moral compass and personal holistic competence.
Our values are (which include British Values): 

  • Happiness
  • Self-awareness
  • Peace
  • Kindness
  • Choice
  • Honesty
  • Independence
  • Optimism
  • Unity
  • Being healthy
