At Stanton St Quintin Primary School we feel it is important that pupils are provided with an education that prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education at Stanton is taught to all children, using the fantastic Coram Life: SCARF program of study, which is both engaging and informative.
We endeavour to ensure that children have the skills to be responsible and informed citizens who are aware of their own and others emotional and physical needs. Children at Stanton are taught to respect and value individuals and treat everyone equally. They have an awareness of British Values and through Religious Education, an understanding of and respect for other religions and beliefs. We teach children how to be responsible for their health and wellbeing, giving them the skills to support their emotional and physical needs as they approach adolescence.
Lessons are tailored to the children's ages and needs. Children are encouraged to share their ideas and feelings if they wish to, with teachers creating a safe, trusting and supportive environment. PSHE is taught discretely once a week, with additional lessons provided should children require it. Our school ethos promotes a culture of support and trust at Stanton, meaning that PSHE is not seen as a one off lesson, but rather an ongoing discussion and way of life at Stanton; we investigate a topic within lessons and continue to discuss and explore it throughout the week through our termly values, assemblies and day to day conversations.
