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.
Summer PSHE topics across the school
This term we have been looking at staying safe. As part of this we have been lucky enough to have a visit from lives where we learnt first aid and how to administer CPR. We also had a visit from GIST who taught us about lorry and road safety.
As well as this we will be looking at transition and moving on as we spend time getting to know our new schools, teachers and classes ready for September!
We have also been lucky enough to experience a day learning all about the culture of India. This has really supported our development and knowledge of the wider world as well as supporting our fundamental British Values of tolerance and respect.

Winter Walk for Cancer Research 2018
Children across the academy wrapped up warm ready for a walk across the field. This was a sponsored walk where children were challenged to complete the walk whatever the weather and the pound they were sponsored would help to support Cancer Research! Well done HPA!

Children in Need 2017!
We have had a fantastic week fundraising for Children in Need! We kicked of the week with Lincoln Ambassadors selling pin badges! KS1 members took responsibility for this and did a very good job!
We held a competition for KS1 and Ks2. KS1 had to design a bandana for a teddy bear. KS2 had to design a poster or create a list of spotty things they could find!
On Friday the 17th we had a non uniform day where we donated a pound or we donated cakes for the cake sale after school!
