At Cookley Sebright Primary School we aim to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through the school council, fundraising events, supporting nominated charities, involvement in community activities including holding regular meetings with our Community Police Officers through Junior PACT – Police And Community Together and supporting our link school in Gambia. The work we do in this area directly links to our commitment to promote British Values.
Our pupils are given opportunities in PSHE (including citizenship) lessons and assemblies to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society.
We teach PSHE & Citizenship in a variety of ways: as a discrete subject, through SEAL lessons (circle time), via assemblies and through other subjects such as RE, History, Geography, Literacy, Maths and Science, as well as through outdoor educational visits, community work and activities.
We base our weekly lessons on Shire Educational’s PSHE & Citizenship in School scheme, to ensure coverage and progression throughout the school. School assemblies regularly use the same themes to reinforce the stands being covered.
The themes covered are:-
Caring & Sharing
Belonging to a Community
Growing up in a Diverse World
Is that Fair?
Caring for the Environment
