Guilden Morden Church of England (VC) Primary Academy

Together we work to succeed and flourish

Personal, Social, Health and Education (PSHE)

Personal, Social, Health and Education (PSHE)


We approach Personal, Social and Health Education in a number of ways at the school. We devote one lesson a week to PSHE and the wide range of issues it embraces. We follow a  whole school appriach using the Cambridgeshire PSHE Service.   We also have a full programme linked to children developing the skills to keep themselves safe in a variety of different situations e.g. internet bullying, road safety,  peer pressure.

Through Collective Worship we celebrate, share and uphold the values we hold as a community and regularly talk about a variety of different topics related to celebrating differences and citizenship.

We aim towards becoming successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens with a sense of pride in all they do. Our behaviour management policy outlines our expectations for all to show respect for people around us.

Community groups are invited into school to extend an understanding of PSHE topics e.g. Life Bus Service, Community Police, School Nurse, Fire Brigade.   


Relationships and Sex Education 

Relationships and sex education (RSE) is an important part of PSHE education.

Relationships education is compulsory for all primary school pupils.
