At St Margaret’s C of E Primary School, PSHE is at the heart of school life and nurtures our children to grow into caring, responsible members of our our school and wider community as well as confident, independent and healthy individuals. Through our whole school approach to PSHE, we believe that it is our emphasis on personal development which will enable our children to flourish and achieve excellence across all areas of the curriculum and in all aspects of their lives; developing intellectually, socially, spiritually and morally. PSHE lessons are delivered on a weekly basis following a spiral curriculum using a progressive scheme of work; 'You Me and and PSHE' which teaches relevant and meaningful content with a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and promoting positive mentally and physically healthy lifestyles. Strong cross-curricular links enable children to apply their learning widely at an age appropriate level. We celebrate diversity and broaden children's understanding of the world around them, equipping them with the knowledge, skills and understanding to make a positive contribution to society. Our PSHE lessons open doors to discussion and offer a safe space for children to talk and reflect with their peers. This is enhanced by our twelve core Christian values and weekly ethos statements which are at the core of our collective worship at St Margaret's alongside our PROUD reward system.
