Inspiring a Love for Learning

“Let all that you do be done with love.” 1 Corinthians 16:14

Enabling children to flourish and succeed




At Croxton Kerrial CE Primary school we are aware of the way that PSHE supports many of the principles of safeguarding and links closely to and the children’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development and the Fundamental British Values. We are all aware of the important role the PSHE curriculum has in supporting school to implement the 9 protected characteristics of The Equality Act 2010.


At Croxton Kerrial CE Primary our intent is to build a PSHE curriculum, which develops learning, and results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills, enabling children to access the wider curriculum, work collaboratively with others and make a positive contribution to the life of the school. Our curriculum will prepare children to be a global citizen in a diverse society and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences for later life. We are aware that the delivered curriculum must reflect the needs of our pupils. We build on the statutory content outlined in statutory guidance and follow the Coram Life Education SCARF programme which is based on Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship.

Teaching and learning in the classroom should show progression across all Key Stages within the PSHE core themes. Each phase builds on the vocabulary, knowledge and skills taught in the previous to allow children to acquire further knowledge, know more and remember more. Our PSHE curriculum will incorporates an age appropriate understanding of RSE, as set out in the statutory guidance, enabling all children to be safe and to understand and develop healthy relationships both now and in their future lives.




We strive to provide our children with learning opportunities across and beyond the curriculum, in specific lessons, special school projects and other activities that enrich pupils’ experiences. There are always occasions where teachers may feel it necessary to teach PSHE as a result of an issue arisen in their own class. At Croxton Kerrial staff reinforce the PSHE curriculum through questioning, vocabulary and through discussion of topics including British Values and SMSC. Through links with the local communities, fundraising opportunities, visitors and national and international events we provide enrichment opportunities to contextualise learning. PSHE is an important part of worship were children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural curiosity is stimulated, challenged and nurtured.




 All children understand the importance of PSHE, RE, SMSC and British Values and the effects it can have on life in and out of school. By teaching pupils to stay safe and healthy, and by building self-esteem, resilience and empathy the personal, social and health education (PSHE) curriculum at Croxton Kerrial enables our learners to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. Our curriculum allows pupils to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
