Our PSHE teaching promotes children's personal, social and economic development as well as their health and well-being. It helps to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active, responsible citizens. At Putnoe Primary School, children’s well-being, happiness and safety are our first priority and PSHE is the key vehicle through which we share this with children. We regard PSHE as an important, integral component of the whole curriculum.
The subject is taught in isolation through the Cambridge scheme as well as through all areas of the curriculum. It 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.
At Putnoe Primary School, we are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe community environment for all of our pupils so that they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere free from discrimination of any kind. We promote this with our Charter of Rights and our anti-bullying ambassador system.
