PSHE at Wickersley Northfield
At Wickersley Northfield Primary, personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education and RSE (Relationship and Sex Education) is an embedded part of our broad and balanced curriculum. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development is at the heart of our school ethos. British Values are promoted through the overarching aims and objectives of PSHE by supporting our children to become healthy and responsible members of society, as well as preparing them for life and work in modern Britain.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
Every one of us needs to show how much we care for each other, and in the process, care for ourselves.

Introducing Team Empower
Mrs Williamson is working closely with a brand new team who will focus on Mental Health and Well Being. The team are currently being trained by Mrs Williamson as 'Mini Mental Health Medics'. They are undergoing a course which will provide them with a basic understanding of mental health, including what mental health means, how it is linked to physical health, what to do if they have a worry and the various ways in which they can look after their mental health. Using this training, the team will then be Mental Health Representatives and will act as a pupil voice for PSHE and mental health and well being.

Children's Mental Health Week 2023
This year’s theme is Let’s Connect.
Human beings are intrinsically connected to each other, and human connection is
vital for the wellbeing and survival of all individuals. Throughout life we rely on
those around us to meet our physical and psychological needs, and we have a role
in helping to meet the needs of others.
People with positive connections to family, friends and others often experience
better mental health than those who are less well connected. When our need for
rewarding social connections is not met, or we don’t feel understood or cared for by
those around us, we can feel isolated and lonely. This is why it is so important for our
mental health that we connect with others in healthy, rewarding and meaningful ways.
Our theme Let’s Connect encourages an inclusive approach to making meaningful
connections for all – during Children’s Mental Health Week, and beyond.
This Anti-Bullying Week we urge adults and children alike to come together to have discussions about what we mean by bullying behaviour, how we can tell the difference between ‘banter’ and bullying and how we can make changes to reduce bullying. Together, we can make a difference if we make a noise to stop bullying. Throughout the week, children will take part in a variety of activities to learn about the difference between banter and bullying and how we can work together to make sure everyone feels happy and safe in school.
