Health and safety, equal opportunities and inclusion, personal, social, physical and emotional development underpin our PSHCE curriculum at all levels and ages. We actively promote courtesy and consideration for others through our behaviour management policy and design our curriculum to ensure all children can access a broad, balanced and enriched curriculum without undue emphasis on any aspect. We invite people into school to raise awareness of issues eg NSPCC re helping others and Childline, because we believe this gives all children wide opportunities to develop their individual talents and become self-confident individuals who can make reasoned choices by the time they leave our school.
