PSHE

At Lingfield Primary School we promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through their learning, their roles in electing and supporting the school council, the house system and their involvement in community activities.

Our pupils are given opportunities in PSHE lessons and assemblies/collective worship to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society. The Lingfield Primary School values of Respect, Resilience and Relationships allow us to maintain a high-profile focus on all elements of PSHE and to run a positive reward system through house points.

We teach PSHE in a variety of ways: as a discrete subject, through purpose-driven lessons, via assemblies and through other subjects such as RE, history, geography, English, maths and science, as well as through outdoor educational visits, community work and activities. We have a PSHE scheme that identifies and provides learning opportunities across the school for every child, and we also use September base-line THRIVE assessments to identify specific needs in individuals, groups and classes. In this way, our PSHE scheme has a flexibility to address issues as they arise and provide the best opportunities for children to learn.
