Personal,Social and Health Education at Hillborough Infant and Nursery School.



Personal, social and health education (PSHE) is an important part of the teaching at Hillborough Infant and Nursery School. Within our school we teach PSHE through whole school and class assemblies, discussion during fruit and milk time, and allocated time for Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning ( SEAL).PSHE and SEAL are also developed in other subjects and topics where it occurs naturally, for example, learning about other cultures and religions in RE.

The SEAL curriculum covers aspects such as new beginnings, getting on and falling out, going for goals, good to be me and relationships. These are taught through stories, role plays, discussions and circle time.


It is our aim that pupils will

  • develop self-awareness;
  • manage their own feelings;
  • be able to promote calm, optimistic states of mind;
  • recover from setbacks and persist in the face of difficulty;
  • be confident and independent, become responsible and make the most of their abilities;
  • empathise with others;
  • work and play co-operatively;
  • compete fairly;
  • recognise hazards and know how to keep safe;
  • stand up for their rights and those of others;
  • prepare to play an active role as citizens;
  • understand, and value, the differences and commonalities between people, respecting the right of others to have beliefs and values different to their own;
  • develop positive attitudes and values;
  • extend personal and social skills.
