At St Michael in the Hamlet Primary School we aim to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through school councils, fundraising events, supporting nominated charities and involvement in community activities. Our pupils are given opportunities in PSHE & SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) lessons and assemblies to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society.
We teach PSHE in a variety of ways: as a discrete subject, through SEAL lessons, via assemblies and through other subjects such as RE, History, Geography, Literacy, Maths and Science, as well as through outdoor educational visits, community work and activities.
St Michael in the Hamlet recognises that children's physical and emotional health and wellbeing is fundamental and also believes that for children to thrive within our community, their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development should be fostered and supported.
The School has received accreditation both as a Healthy School, (the assessment of which encompasses physical, social and emotional health and wellbeing) and as an inclusive school with the Inclusion Quality Mark.
Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) provides a context for supporting children's wellbeing through teaching and learning. Please follow the link to PSHE and look at the Curriculum Map for further details.
At the end of each half term we have a day dedicated to wellbeing for children and staff. In February, the children took part in a Yoga and Zumba session, learning different ways to relax and calm their minds. Children enjoyed coming to school dressed in their pyjamas.
