PSHEE

Children are taught one PSHEE lesson a week, usually by their form teacher. Many of the topics covered are also covered in school assemblies.

The school uses a literacy based scheme called ‘Telling Tales’. In Year Six the children are encouraged to discuss current affairs that are of local, national and international interest. All children are encouraged to form and share their own opinions in these lessons.

Course Content

The formal PSHEE lessons are taught by Form Teachers who play a vital role in supporting the pupils own experiences and learning. PSHEE, however, spreads throughout the whole ethos of the School and daily assembly time is also seen as an extremely important time for the whole School to think about themselves and others. The School also appoints prefects who have individual responsibilities and a an elected School Council who are encouraged to run their own meetings and take an active role in the running of the School. For example the School Council decide the charities the School will support, think about environmental initiatives and raise money for playground equipment. The merit mark and house point reward system also engenders a positive attitude to school life and encourages personal responsibility. The School has a simple Code of Conduct rather than a large set of rules, and its motto 'non sibi' ("not for one's self") is central to the School’s ethos.
