The school is concerned about the development of each child as a person and their growth and development as an individual.  We encourage children to think and behave positively and try to build upon strengths.  We aim to encourage a caring attitude to others and the environment.  At Putnoe we aim to enhance each child’s self esteem and confidence so that they are able to operate effectively on their own and as a member of a group. PSHE provides opportunities for children to develop as citizens in a community and to develop life skills.

PSHE is taught in isolation as well as through the curriculum and is underpinned by the school’s Behaviour and Discipline Policy and our Values Education. Circle time is used to practice essential skills and to develop positive attitudes.

We are a Healthy School and as such have received accreditation for Safety, Healthy Eating and Drug Education. We have also received accreditation for Physical Activity and Sex and Relationships, all aspects of the PSHE curriculum.
