Personal, Social and Health Education

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)

at Mauldeth Road


When teaching PSHE we want:

To equip children with the skills to confidently talk, listen and think about feelings and relationships  

To enable children to become active citizens who respect their own and others’ communities and values

To enable children to understand and develop healthy and safe lifestyles

To foster an appreciation of  the importance of caring for their environment  

To develop the whole child, fostering the skills to become independent and responsible members of our school, its community  and British society.




As part of the EYFS curriculum the children are encouraged to be confident to try new activities and show independence, resilience and perseverance in the face of challenge. They talk about the reasons for rules and to know right from wrong. EYFS also focus on managing  their own basic hygiene and personal needs, including dressing, going to the toilet and understanding the importance of healthy food choices. rw nursery teeth.png nursery quote rw .png
