Thank you for visiting our PSHE page, watch our video to see all the great things we’re learning











At the Academy at St James, we have created our PSHE curriculum using the PSHE Association. Using this scheme, we have designed a well sequenced spiral curriculum which gives children the opportunity to build on their prior learning and knowledge as they progress through school.



This is divided into the following topics:-

  • Careers, financial capability and economic wellbeing;
  • Physical health and wellbeing;
  • Keeping safe and managing risks;
  • Identity, Society and Equality;
  • Drug, alcohol and tobacco education;
  • Mental health and emotional wellbeing;
  • Sex and relationship education.

Throughout the year we also focus on a number of safeguarding themes including:

  • Anti bullying;
  • Hate crimes;
  • E safety weeks with constant reminders weekly through collective worships.
  • Drug awareness
  • Online safety
  • Extremism and radicalization (year 5 & 6)

We celebrate our differences and similarities with all who live and work in our local community.

We have close networks with our secondary feeder schools. At the start of this term and over lockdown, secondary schools kept in touch with our year 6’s to help with their transition.

Collective worship

We gather together as a whole school or key stage 4 times a week to worship and strengthen our understanding of events and celebrations around the world. During this time, we also focus upon British values and our whole school values. In addition we have a class worship on a Wednesday. We use this time to reflect on what is going on the the world and in our own community.


Charity work within school

This November, we took part in our Remembrance service for the fallen armed forces. We visited our local cenataph in Allerton.


Anti bullying week

This week we have been talking about how we can look after each other and how to ask for help if we are upset or scared. We took part in the odd sock day and wore yellow for Pudsey bear day.
