Personal, Social and Health Education
'Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb but how well you bounce back'
At St Francis Catholic Primary School we aim to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through class & school councils, fundraising events, supporting nominated charities and involvement in community activities. Our whole school approach to PSHE ensures every child has the opportunity to build upon their skills, so children have the opportunity to reach their full potential both academically and socially.
PSHE helps to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead a confident, healthy independent life and become informed, active, responsible citizens.
This will be achieved through:
- The whole curriculum
- Pastoral Care and Support within school
- Religious Education, following ‘The Way, The Truth and The Life’ scheme.
- You, Me and PSHE (A whole school approach to PSHE)
- Educational visits from specialists for example, D-Side and ChildLine
- Circle time sessions based on ‘Statements to Live By’ developed by the Leeds Diocese
- Specific guidance from health specialists and others, including Healthy Schools Aims
We kicked off Anti-bullying week with odd socks day. We all wore odd socks across school to show we will all do our part and take a stand to stop bullying. Across school we completed varying activities. KS1 made an anti-bullying charter, we all signed the charter using our handprints. KS2 completed other activities such as making anti-bullying posters. Here are some pictures to show some of the things we did.
