PSHE and Wellbeing
PSHE subject intent:
Equip children with the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to manage their lives now and in the future.
As part of whole school approach, planned PSHE sessions develop the qualities and attributes that pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.

Children's Mental Health Week ran from 7th- 13th February this year. Staff planned a range of mindfullness activities. The work was all based on the theme 'Growing Together'. We also spent time identifying what we are grateful for in our everyday lives. Parents can find more information here: https://www.childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk/parents-and-carers/
Last year's Anti-bullying week theme was 'One Kind Word.' We await the announcement of the theme for 2022; anti bullying week will run from 14th- 18th November 2022.
During Anti-bullying week the children will take part in a range of planned activities to help them to understand what Bullying is, to learn how to seek help and also how to safely speak out if they see another person being bullied.
