At Woodford Valley, we want to ensure children are happy, thrive and are prepared for life with hopes and dreams for their future. The personal, social, health, and economic well-being of our children is a core part of our whole school ethos and is embedded throughout our learning community.
We use ‘Learning for Life’, a scheme devised by experienced Wiltshire teachers, encompassing all areas of P.S.H.E. and guided by the principles of Every Child Matters and the Children’s Charter for PSHE Education, produced by Wiltshire children. Subject matter includes: health, risk, relationships, loss, change and personal finance. The implementation of ‘Learning for Life’ enables all pupils to flourish through our PSHE curriculum.
Our scheme is supported by a carefully planned Sex and Relationships programme, Life Education Van workshops, friendly visits from the Community Police, Bikeability, Junior Good Citizen, our own vegetable plot , cookery sessions in our own studio, extensive opportunities for fun and physical exercise and a philosophical and spiritual whole school outlook.
Through our PSHE, we intend all pupils to have the opportunities to become independent, resilient learners who show respect and dignity towards others. As well as this, to appreciate the world that they live in and to celebrate achievements of all.
