"No act of kindess, no matter how small, is ever wasted."  Aesop


At St Botolph’s Primary, our vision is to be a place of great love and great learning, built upon our values, friendship, courage, respect, forgiveness, truthfulness and thankfulness, where everyone thrives on encouragement, support and challenge. As part of this vision, we aim to deliver a high-quality Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) and Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) curriculum in which we convey accurate, relevant and age-appropriate information to pupils. This will ensure that our children can achieve their full potential and will leave our school prepared for the demands of society in their future. We use two whole school programmes to teach PSHE/RSHE: Collins My Life and The Christopher Winter Project. Both these programmes support children to acquire and develop skills which can help them to form healthy relationships and friendships, develop their understanding of British Values, understand self-care and well-being, personal safety and finance, as well as how to be an active and supportive member of their local area, nation and the whole world.


By the time children leave our school the PSHE/RSHE work completed will mean that our pupils have a ready willingness and ability to try new things, push themselves and persevere. To have a good understanding of how to stay safe, healthy and develop good relationships. To have an appreciation of what it means to be a positive member of a diverse, multicultural society. To have a strong-awareness, interlinked with compassion and tolerance for others.


PSHE/RSHE sessions are delivered on a weekly basis. Teachers make PSHE/RSHE lessons engaging, interesting and fun through a variety of teaching methods and interactive activities. These include:

  • Discussions
  • Pictures
  • Scenarios/role plays
  • Practical work
  • Drama
  • Individual or group tasks
  • Whole-class teaching
  • Enquiry tasks
  • Research activities
  • Use of appropriate film clips, books and websites
  • Games

These approaches are designed to encourage children to build skills such as empathy, making reasoned arguments, understanding other points of view and discussing issues in a respectful manner.

Well being. Pupil of the Day

Building children’s self-esteem is vital, so every day in each class, there is a pupil of the day. This person is picked at random out of a box. The child chosen has a special cushion to sit on during the day and a star badge to wear. Most importantly, the child will be given compliments from their teacher and peers that are recorded on a piece of paper and sent home. A compliment is then also encouraged from home. The compliments from home are shared with the class and then go into a special book which is kept in school.
