PSHE & Growing Up and Relationships

PSHE at Henry Whipple


At Henry Whipple Primary School we recognise the value and importance of Personal Social Health Economic Education (PSHE Education). We are committed to providing a safe, engaging learning environment for our pupils, where they can flourish. This forms the basis of our vision for all children to Believe Belong and Achieve. We believe it allows our pupils to become healthy, safe, independent and responsible members of our school and the wider community.

Children are also taught Drug Aware from the Nottingham City Council framework. As a school we have tailored the curriculum to suit our children's needs. Children from F2 to Year 6 participate in lessons.


Children from F2 to year 6 are taught `Growing Up and Relationships`. The framework is from the Christopher Winter Project. Through focus meetings with parents the framework has been adapted to suit our children and their needs.


The PSHE framework is continuously adapted to suit our children's needs to ensure maximum learning impact.

The new academic year has begun and we are already beginning our first enterprise project. We are working with Virgin Media to Make £5 Grow. Our Junior Leadership Team and Pupil Ambassadors will be working to make £5 grow.



Make £5 Grow


JLT and Pupil Ambassadors have held a meeting with Mrs Winter and Mrs Rai to discuss what enterprise project we would like to implement, in order to make £5 grow. To start our project off we are going to be learning about enterprise, budgeting and steps needed to implement our project.
