Menston Primary School

Making our world a better place


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, Health and Economic 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.

Our PSHE curriculum is underpinned by the CORAM SCARF programme of lessons, resources and educator-led sessions. In delivering this programme, we are confident that we meet all of the statutory Relationships Education and Health Education requirements, as the programme has been closely matched to each statutory objective.  The CORAM SCARF programme also delivers comprehensive content aligned with SMSC and British Values.  As the curriculum is spiral, children build on their knowledge and understanding from previous years at age-appropriate levels.
