The person in charge of PSHE at Grange Primary Academy is Miss Green.
We believe that the ethos of our school underpins the PSHE development of all learners. It is central to the life and work of our school.
At Grange, we recognise that the personal development of pupils plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. We therefore aim to provide an education which gives pupils opportunities to explore and develop:
- their own values and beliefs
- spiritual awareness
- high standards of personal behaviour
- a positive, caring attitude towards other people
- an understanding of how to keep safe and healthy
PSHE is a dimension of the whole school experience which makes the curriculum relevant, stimulating, creative and fun. It enriches each subject, and the ethos of Grange, and is an essential ingredient of whole school success.

Why is learning PSHE so important?
A growing body of research shows that pupils who are emotionally healthy do better at school. PSHE education helps children and young people to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn, such as anxiety and unhealthy relationships. PSHE education also helps pupils to develop skills and aptitudes - like teamwork, communication, and resilience - that are crucial to navigating the challenges and opportunities of the modern world, and are increasingly valued by employers.
PSHE education helps pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. From making responsible decisions about alcohol to succeeding in their first job, PSHE education helps pupils to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up.
We believe that parents welcome a partnership between home and schools which supports their children’s personal and social development, and help deal with issues of increasing complexity such as those related to mental health and staying safe, both online and offline.
