Grange Valley Primary & Nursery School

Inspire to Guide, Challenge and Achieve.

Personal, Social, Health & Emotional  

As part of our whole school approach, PSHE education at Grange Valley is a planned programme of learning through which our children acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives.

At Grange Valley we make provision for it as we feel this is an important part of our children’s education giving them the qualities and attributes they need to thrive as individuals.

We offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which: promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life’.

Subject Leader

My name is Mrs A Kruze and I am the PHSE & RSE Subject Lead at Grange Valley Primary School. I am passionate about PHSE & RSE and its importance to shape our children of today through offering them a curriculum which reflects the challenges of modern Britain and equips them with the tools to develop and flourish in an increasingly complex yet exciting world. I understand our responsibility to deliver a high-quality and evidenced based relationships and health curriculum for all of our pupils.

With this in mind, we have carefully chosen a scheme in which to follow titled Jigsaw. Jigsaw follows a yearly plan with carefully sequenced age-appropriate lessons. We have listened to the needs of our community and tailored a curriculum which suits the needs of our pupils here at Grange Valley. We ensure that our curriculum supports the personal and pastoral needs of our pupils, teaching sensitively and inclusively ensuring that we respect to the backgrounds and beliefs of our pupils and parents, with the aim of equipping pupils with the knowledge needed to become competent citizens in Modern Britain.  

To ensure that learning is meaningful, we also offer a range of CPD opportunities for all staff and have a culture of sharing knowledge across our staff team and our partnership. Through this collective learning, I am proud that our team is able to ‘guide, challenge and achieve’ to ensure that all members of our community strive to be the best that they can be.

LFC Foundation Campaign #IWill

LFC Foundation and Right To Play are working Side by Side

In addition to the PHSE Curriculum, our Year 5 and 6 pupils are taking part in LFC Foundation's #IWill campaign over a 12 week programme. The LFC Foundation works alongside the National #iWill campaign to deliver a wide range of youth led social action programmes that empower children and young people to identify and tackle the issues that they feel passionately about. The weekly sessions put the children and young people right at the heart of the programme . The programme encourages children to step slightly out of their comfort zone, to explore the issues that impact upon society and the environment, and to progressively develop ownership and leadership of the programme via empowering the children and young people to engage and lead the programme. #IWill reinforces that anyone and everyone has the power to make a positive difference through social action.
