Millfields Primary School and Nursery is a nurturing learning environment in which every child is encouraged to develop their full potential by being confident and inquisitive learners.
As a school, we believe that children are all individuals and therefore, we aim to empower our children to become ambitious learners who are able to work independently, are resilient, can question, are empathetic and supportive of others and have the self-belief needed for a successful future.
The teaching and learning of PSHE supports and upholds this vision.
PSHE deals with the diverse beliefs, values and attitudes that individuals and societies hold. They help pupils to develop themselves, their understanding of the world, and their ability to communicate their feelings. PSHE helps children to acquire British values and attitudes which are necessary if they are to make sense of their experiences within school and life itself, value themselves, respect others, appreciate differences and diversity and feel confident and informed as a British citizen.
PSHE education cannot exist in isolation. At Millfields Primary School and Nursery it is part of a whole school approach and our curriculum provides a range of opportunities for children to make links to other areas of learning and explore a wide range of social, moral, cultural and behavioural issues.
As a school, we aim to enrich the lives of our children by providing them with the skills and opportunities to apply their learning within and beyond the curriculum. PSHE underpins our school ethos and is delivered as a rolling programme from Nursery to Year 6. It also includes a multi-agency approach.
Through PSHE, we believe we can enhance children’s education and help them become caring, respectful and confident individuals who will contribute positively to our school and the wider community now and in the future.
Our PSHE curriculum ensures all our pupils:
- Learn about being healthy
- How to stay safe
- Healthy relationships
- Respect and tolerance of others
