PSHE Statement of Intent

At Simms Cross Primary School, we encourage our pupils to play an active and positive role in contributing to the life of the school and its wider community. Through doing this, we help develop children’s independence, responsibility and help create a strong sense of self-worth.  

Through the PSHE curriculum, the pupils of Simms Cross Primary School are provided with opportunities to enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through: cooperation, communication, evaluation, reflection, decision making and managing their emotions. The children learn about their human rights (through UNICEF’s ‘Children’s Rights’ articles) and engage with issues of diversity, identity and equality through exploration of similarities and differences between people and their experiences, and the discussion of social and moral dilemmas. 

At Simms Cross Primary School, we believe the role of PSHE is significant to individual pupil motivation and achievement; it teaches children to know and understand what constitutes a healthy lifestyle; be confident, independent and responsible members of the school community; and to develop good relationships with other members of the school and the wider community.


Year 1 have been working together and discussing steps to make a jam sandwich. We spoke about how mistakes help us to learn and we achieved our goal of instructing Miss Boyd on how to make a jam sandwich. Well done everyone. #SimmscrossPSHE

We took a wander around class today to help identify our strengths - we had lots! We then looked at goals to aim for in school and at home as well as discussing barriers and challenges we might face.

Year 1 have been talking about what we are really proud of. We have decorated treasure chests to keep our achievements in. #SimmsCrossPSHE

Year 1 have been learning about bullying and what it might feel like when someone is bullied. It is not acceptable and it is never okay. We all need to feel safe. #SimmsCrossPSHE

This afternoon we enjoyed role playing scenarios about what it is like to be excluded from the cool group and what is like to have power over another person.

Year 1 have been thinking and talking about how we are similar to each other. #SimmscrossPSHE
