Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. Holbeach Primary Academy makes good provision for PSHE through the three overlapping and linked ‘Core Themes’ (Health and wellbeing, Relationships, Living in the Wider World).
Our PSHE education prepares our pupils for both their futures and their present day-to-day lives. Through our teaching they are given the opportunities to recognise and reflect on how learning is relevant to them and can be applied in their own lives.
There are 5 outlined British Values which have to be taught, upheld and strived towards in primary schools across the United Kingdom. These are:
Holbeach Primary Academy are mindful of these values and embed them into everyday teaching and learning. All children have an assembly each week focussing on a British Value and how to links to our everyday life at school and the wider world. For example, we have learnt about democracy in the United Kingdom and then places further afield such as Australia.
Academy Council and Lincoln Ambassadors
Each class has elected (linking to our British Values) two representatives to form an Academy Council and act as a Lincoln Ambassador. These children aid staff in making decisions, for example, hiring a new teacher and also offer assistance for whole school events, for example selling Red Noses etc. These children are to act as a role model to others, be a confidante for their peers and communicate with staff their peers' viewpoint.
