Shaw Hill


PSHE at Shaw Hill Primary School aims to develop children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding of the world. The entire curriculum is underpinned by a strong focus on the teaching of British values and respect for all cultures reflected in modern Britain. We ensure that children leave our school having a clear understanding of right and wrong so that they grow up to be good role models within their local and wider community.

We consider it vital that our pupils know how to conduct themselves as strong, honest and law-abiding citizens and have pride in themselves, their communities and their country.

Through lessons, assemblies, school trips, visitors and workshops we prepare children for opportunities in later life. There are additional activities within the school year with a specific focus, e.g. bullying, e-safety, aspirations for the future and stranger danger.

During their time at school children learn to identify different emotions and understand how to deal with them and where to seek support. Our children develop their independence, use of initiative and the ability to work both independently and in cooperation with others who have different faiths and beliefs.

We aim to ensure that children learn about leading a healthy lifestyle so that they can make the right choices when they are older.  Each year group has the opportunity to cook a healthy meal each term, whilst also learning about hygiene, health and safety and how to prepare food.
