PSHE and Citizenship

PSHE and Citizenship, is a non-statutory subject that supports the delivery of a broad and balanced curriculum, which meets pupils’ needs and prepares them for the challenges and opportunities of adult life. The programme of study includes three core themes:

  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Relationships
  • Living in the Wider World

Embedded within our Mission Statement, we give all children the opportunity to achieve, believe and care, by providing our children with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, Christian values and skills they need in order to reach their potential as individuals and within the community.

Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of their school and community. In doing so they learn to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning. They reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.

They learn to understand and respect our common humanity; diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.


Here at St Wilfrid’s our Citizenship curriculum plays a lead role in strengthening British Values. We aim to ‘promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths.

Citizenship is also addressed through other subjects such as RE, Science and Geography. The school offers further citizenship opportunities, including an annual mini enterprise project (Year 6).

Mentally Healthy Schools Award

The school has recently received a gold award for Emotional Health and Well Being (EHWB). The lead member of staff involved with EHWB, is the Headteacher, with the Chair of Governors and the Citizenship coordinators.

Young Citizenship Award

This award is open to all pupils in the school from Year 1 to Year 6 as recognition of their contribution to a local community project or voluntary activity.

Sex Education

This is taught as part of the PSHE curriculum across the Academy. As children enter their final two years of primary education, parents are invited into school prior to the delivery of Puberty and Growing Up lessons, so that they are more aware of the curriculum. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from sex education in Year 6. All lessons are appropriate to the pupil’s age and maturity and it is taught within a moral, family oriented and Christian framework. Staff work with experienced outside agencies in the planning and delivery of sex education.
