At Grafton Primary School PSHE aims to help develop pupils into healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage all of our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through school councils, fundraising events, supporting nominated charities and involvement in community events. Our pupils are given opportunities in PSHE and assemblies to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society.
PSHE is taught is a variety of ways, such as: as a discrete subject, through assemblies, via educational visits, as well as through other subjects and activities within the curriculum. The PSHE curriculum includes specific teaching on themes such as: Anti-Bullying and Respect, Sex and Relationships Education and Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco Education. For more information about what pupils’ learn about each half term, please see the PSHE curriculum overview.
