Mrs Anstice is the curriculum leader for PSHE.
There are many opportunities for PSHE through class circle times, in how we deal with issues, through work with charities, sessions in the Life Education Caravan, One World Week, community engagement, Anti Bullying, Rainbow Flag, International Projects, Money, E-Safety, sessions with our PCSO, World of Work, Science, RE, Global Learning, lessons in Social and Emotional Aspects of Education with our Teaching Assistants. We also follow a whole school mental health program called My Happy Mind.
