PSHE enables children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. At Pleasant Street we encourage our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community. In so doing we help develop their self-esteem and confidence. We teach them how society is organised and governed and ensure that they experience the process of democracy in school through the school council.  We teach them about rights and responsibilities and they learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse multicultural society.


The core themes are currently delivered using the 1Decision Programme of study in Key Stages One and Two, in addition to other school resources. Parents and carers can find out more about the content of the curriculum and access some of the resources for home use by following the link.  This will bring you to the 1Decision Parent and Carer information page.

Diversity Day

During Diversity Day class 4 looked at “a shelter for sadness” by Anne Booth. The book is about a small boy who creates a shelter for his sadness, a safe space where Sadness is welcome, where it can curl up small, or be as big as it can be, where it can be noisy or quiet, or anything in between. The boy can visit the shelter whenever he needs to, every day, sometimes every hour, and the two of them will cry and talk or just sit, saying nothing. We discussed whether you should ever pretend you don’t feel a certain emotion.
