Health and Wellbeing

We know that the physical and mental health and well-being of our children is critical to success in school and life.  Nurturing this aspect of a child's development is fundamental to our curriculum, our relationships and our pastoral support.  We want every child to feel cared for and valued as an individual.  Learning about health and wellbeing will help children cope with uncertainties in life, have confidence to try new and different things and make the most of opportunities that come along.   We follow a structured and progressive programme to support children's understanding of health and wellbeing through regular `Personal, Social and Health Education' (PSHE) lessons as well as through links in other areas of the curriculum.

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)

PSHE, aims to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding to lead confident, healthy and independent lives.

here are three core themes of primary school PSHE:

1. Health and Wellbeing
2. Relationships
3. Living in the Wider World: economic wellbeing and being a responsible citizen.


Health and Wellbeing

Healthy Schools Award

In July 2020, Miss Jackson successfully achieved the Silver Healthy Schools Award for Seton School.  The award recognises the school's focus on health and well-being, which is at the heart of everything we do.  

The Healthy Schools resources include links to information and advice for parents, which may be especially helpful for families dealing with the challenges of Covid-19 restrictions.  Access the resources here


The benefits of regular physical activity are well-documented and at Seton School, we embrace opportunities to be active!  In addition to our comprehensive PE programme, we use our all-weather running track to complete `Daily Mile' challenges.   


We want all children to grow up healthy, happy, safe, and able to manage the challenges and opportunities of modern Britain. That is why, from September 2020, all primary age children will be taught Relationships and Health Education.

These subjects are designed to equip your child with knowledge to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships as well as preparing them for a successful adult life. The world for all young people looks very different from the way it did 20 years ago when this curriculum was last updated – these changes bring the content into the 21st century, so that it is relevant for every child.

PSHE & Relationships and Sex Education Policy May 2021

Our PSHE lead is Miss V Laven.  Parents/carers  and pupils have had the opportunity  to consult on our new PSHE policy/resources. Please find below a Powerpoint which was shared will all parents to explain the new changes. Please contact Miss V Laven if you have any further questions. 



Living in the Wider World 

To ensure children have high aspirations of themselves as learners so they can embrace their talents and achieve well in all aspects of school life, we include explicit `skills teaching' in our curriculum. 

In September 2020, we introduced `Skills Builder'.   Across the academic year and in every year group, teachers expose and teach 8 essential learner skills through explicit lessons and through opportunities to make links in other subjects.   The framework enables pupils to understand themselves better as learners, celebrate their talents and know the skills they needs to develop further.  The 8 skills are listening, speaking, problems solving, creativity, staying positive, aiming high, leadership and teamwork.    


Our Skills Builder programme links with opportunities to learn about different careers and further education.  Regular visits and visitors, representing a wide range of professions, supplement our teaching.

Regular `Challenge Days' provide meaningful and stimulating opportunities to put skills into action and relate them to the world of work.
