Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship education at Edith Neville.
Our curriculum provides structured opportunities for the children to develop and practice personal, social and life skills. They explore a variety of issues, including rights and responsibilities, physical and emotional health and wellbeing, drug education (including alcohol and tobacco), sex and relationship education (SRE), citizenship, anti-bullying, safety and the environment.
During Anti-Bullying week we enjoy assemblies and workshops led by Bigfoot Arts education which help us to understand how important it is to include everyone and to speak out when we see something that is wrong. Our 'Roots of Empathy' work with older children develops empathy in our young learners and develops responsible, mature children who understand the positive impact they can have on our world.
Financial literacy is essential to a good education for us here at Edith Neville. Every year we hold a Money Week. Children design a product or service that they wish to sell, calculating costs and organising tasks. They then spend a full day 'working' in different classrooms. The more 'work' they do the more money they earn. Finally, they can spend their money on all the wonderful products or services they have designed and the more money they have, the more they can spend!
