Personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) and citizenship help to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives, and to become informed, active responsible citizens. The Primary Strategy materials for developing the social and emotional aspects of learning (SEAL) are used throughout the school, underpinning the curriculum. The school also makes use of aspects of the Go Givers Scheme which is a leading national PSHE and citizenship programme for primary schools.. Its aim is to develop caring, concerned citizens with the confidence and skills to make a positive difference to their communities, both local and global.


Pupils are encouraged to take responsibilities within their class and to develop an understanding of common needs through Circle Time. The school has also developed many community links with local residents, groups, churches and businesses, helping the children to develop an understanding of their roles as citizens of the local community.


Pupils also undertake duties as members of the School Council, which involves children in democratic decision making to benefit the environment and organisation of the school community.


Throughout school the children are encouraged to recognise the need for a healthy lifestyle.  The school actively promotes the benefits of access to water and fresh fruit.
