PSHE at Manchester Road
Personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) is an important part in a child's education that equips them with key knowledge and skills to apply to real-life situations. It encompasses many areas of study, including healthy lifestyles and relationships and sex education (RSE). Relationships education is compulsory for all primary school pupils.
At Manchester Road we teach PHSE using materials from the Jigsaw scheme alongside other suitable materials.
Manchester Road have also adopted an approach to Character Development, which recognises behaviours and traits that contribute to being a responsible citizen in our communities. In school, we do this in a variety of ways by: using a house system, adopting PPP ambassadors and the development of a School Council.
Please see below for information regarding the Character Development opportunities at Manchester Road:
