Primary Phase

PSHE education at Cromwell sees pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain.

PSHE helps pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage many of the critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face as they grow up and in adulthood.

By teaching pupils to stay safe and healthy, and by building self-esteem, resilience and empathy, our effective PSHE programme tackles barriers to learning, raises aspirations, and improves the life chances of all pupils.
