PSHE is ‘Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education’. Through PSHE lessons at Craneswater, children are able to acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives – both now and in the future.

Our PSHE topics include:

  • Anti-bulling week

  • Staying safe

  • Drugs and alcohol awareness

  • Healthy lifestyles

  • Money management

  • Citizenship

  • Poverty

  • Sex and relationships education

Through these lessons we aim for children to develop the qualities and attributes needed to thrive as individuals, family members and positive members of society.
