At Seven Stars Primary School we believe that PSHE is fundamental to the development of the individual potential in all our children. It is recognised at Seven Stars Primary School as crucial to our children’s development as responsible, confident and considerate people. PSHE provides the means by which young children are taught to reflect upon themselves and their behaviour towards others.

At Seven Stars, we want our children to:-

  • value the achievements they make, and the achievements of others
  • make informed choices to deal with risks and meeting challenges now and in the future.
  • decide on values by which they want to live their lives.

Here is an update of where we are up to in PSHE at Seven Stars Primary School:

  • Staff have reviewed the curriculum to ensure it is meeting the needs of the children in their class.
  • The school are now using 1Decision to teach PSHE alongside other resources.
  • Last year, we achieved the quality mark for physical activity and this year we have achieved the quality mark for ethos.
  • We have had several visitors into school including the fire service, police and RNLI.
