At Woodthorpe C of E Primary School we aim to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society.  We encourage our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.  Our children are given opportunities in P.S.H..E. lessons to develop confidence, self-motiviation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society.

The P.S.H..E. curriculum is taught both through the delivery of the PSHE Matters units of work and in a variety of other ways: through other subjects such as literacy or history, as part of RE, through ‘circle times’, science topics and outdoor educational visits and activities.

We have several initiatives in school to improve children’s self esteem and confidence. We provide Nurturing sessions where appropriate, along with Lego Therapy. 

Through careful planning, the whole school covers the same unit  of learning, which is differentiated according to their age.


This term, our area of learning is Money Matters. This covers topics such as:

  • Spending
  • Borrowing
  • Budgeting
  • Banks
  • Loans
  • Employment equality
