  • To encourage children to be active members of our school community, carrying out responsibilities with a sense of commitment, duty and pride.
  • To encourage our children to become mature, confident individuals, capable of embracing the opportunities and challenges of life.
  • To participate in a variety of fundraising activities ( e.g., Children in Need, Red Nose Day, NSPCC) to help others in the greater community.
  • To encourage all staff, parents and governors to work together to promote all aspects of our School’s key values.

*Units only have a half term block so some units may just be one or 2 lessons. The coverage will depend on the needs of the year group and will be decided upon by the teachers. Some units may require more coverage than others, depending on the needs of the particular year group and events prior to learning (National pandemic - may require to complete Wellbeing lessons for the first unit.)

**This unit is mainly fulfilled during Aspirations week which has no set term that it is in. Therefore units may need to be juggled to accommodate this. If Aspirations Week does not occur for whatever reason then lessons will need to be planned to clever the objectives.

***At the moment there is no timetabled slot for these units of work for Upper School. But year 5 does cover the unit on puberty, this is within the Science curriculum but does respond to the need of the children. 

Children in upper school also cover some of these topics in Assembly, Aspiration week, Science lessons and Computing lessons. When reflecting on the year group stand alone lessons may be accessed depending on the need of the Year group.

Physical and emotional changes in puberty; external genitalia; personal hygiene routines; support with puberty

Children do not learn about FGM but teachers are trained in what to look out for. This can be assessed and rethought if deemed necessary.
