PSHE intent

At Peakirk cum Glinton primary school, we believe that PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. We deliver a broad and varied range of lessons that underpin the needs of the children with particular regard to the children, families and the wider community. We have a strong focus on developing each child as a whole, delivering PSHE in a way that equips pupils with a sound understanding of risk and giving them the knowledge and skills to make safe, informed decisions.

As part of our PSHE education, we provide the pupils with key information about drugs, alcohol and sex and relationships, at age appropriate level. We also provide them with information and strategies to identify, develop and maintain good health and well-being, through physical activity, diet, social skills and mental health awareness. We deliver the content of PSHE in a variety of ways throughout school, allowing links to our Christian Values to be identified and explored. PSHE discussions are led by the adults to ensure the children are able to discuss, share and listen to ideas in a safe and supportive environment. Our aim is to ensure children leave our school with a well-rounded, balanced view of the world, giving them the knowledge to keep them emotionally and physically safe. We want them to feel confident that they can contribute positively to the local and wider community


Our PSHE is planned from the PSHE Association using their accredited resources, we use a thematic scheme so that all classes will be looking at the same theme across school but at their appropriate age and skill level.

Across the year we have themed days and weeks to enrich our PSHE Curriculum that tie in nationally with other schools such as a 'Friendship Week' in November that represents the national 'Anti bullying Week' . We organise activities to  support Children in Need day, Comic Relief, Sports Relief, Safer Internet Day and various others. 

Bikeability in Years 5 & 6 support children and provide them valuable skills in road safety and road safety is promoted through fortnightly visits to our local church for Collective Worship. 

On Friday , our weekly celebration assembly encourages self esteem and respect by celebrating the achievements and behaviour of individual children and classes. Each week individual children that have shown positive attributes such as kindness and good manners are rewarded with certificates. 

Older children are given roles such as 'Play Leaders' and 'Anti bullying Ambassadors' to help support other children develop their friendship skills.
