PSHE at Ladybridge Primary School
It is our intention that PSHE and Well-being education has a high priority at Ladybridge School. Children will have safe and effective lessons that are age appropriate for primary aged children.
PSHE will be embedded in the school core values of aiming high, resilience and respect and will help all pupils, parents, carers, staff and governors to achieve the school motto ‘Be the best that you can be’.
The Governing body, SLT and school staff will ensure that all PSHE related policies are active, visible and understood by themselves, children and families.
All policies will be inclusive for everyone and meets the needs of everyone in school. Support will be provided for vulnerable children and adults as needed.
Training for adults working in school and information events for parents and carers will ensure a deeper and greater understanding of a curriculum designed to promote skills needed for living in the wider world.

Children will be well prepared for, the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences in later life. They will have a sense of their own and other’s moral, spiritual, cultural, mental and physical development.
They will know how to look after themselves and each other and have a sense of good well-being and happiness in their own skin yet will know where to seek advice and support when they feel vulnerable.
