Menston Primary School

Making our world a better place

PSHE/SMSC

Menston Primary School is a welcoming and caring school, promoting high standards and encouraging every pupil to be a positive participant in society. We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum tailored to individual pupil needs, which will enable all children to achieve their maximum potential. We also strive to ensure that all pupils develop an enthusiasm for and a love of learning.

At Menston, PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) education linked with SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Cultural and Social education) and British Values, addresses both pupils’ direct experience and preparation for their future and ensures learning is revisited, reinforced and extended in age- and stage-appropriate contexts. Our PSHE programme is tailored to meet all pupils’ needs regardless of their educational needs, gender, race, disability, ethnicity or faith. It is also tailored to our local circumstances.

We use guidance from the PSHE Association, Coarm Education and Schools Linking Network to ensure that we deliver an appropriate, relevant and engaging programme of study for PSHE, SMSC and British Values.

Announcements

In line with the government directive, as of Monday 23rd March until further notice, Menston Primary School will be open as a childcare facility to our school’s key worker children and children that fall into the vulnerable category for those times when they cannot be safely cared for at home. Department for Education advice is that if it is at all possible for children to be at home then they should be. For any children registered for childcare, please report all absences to the school office before 9am. We have a 24 hour absence line 01943 873180 where you can leave a message to let us know what the reason for absence is. You must not send any children in if they are displaying the symptoms of Covid-19 which include a new, persistent cough and/ or a high temperature. If your child has sickness or diarrhoea they must be kept off school for 48 hours after the last bout of illness.
