Aiming High



‘All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.’
Walt Disney

At Bader, pupils are enriched with a PSHE curriculum with a variety of experiences. We aspire for all pupils to:

  • Build and sustain positive relationships, have friends, and treat others with fairness, compassion and respect;
  • Grow healthy and strong, and understand how to look after their body and keep themselves safe;
  • Live in the wider world as respectful, well rounded individuals, understanding that the world is a wondrous place and be determined to make a difference.


Our PSHE curriculum uses the 3D PSHE scheme which is taught through three underlying core themes:

  1. Health and Wellbeing
  2. Relationships
  3. Living in the Wider World

PSHE in Early Years:

We teach Personal, Social and Emotional Development in Early Years in creative and innovative ways.  Fundamental British Values are embedded within lessons, as well as teaching through stories, which are meaningful and relevant to this age group, in order to help teach key messages and skills.  Engaging, practical follow-up activities are used, linked to the stories, leading to lasting learning around the areas of making relationships, self awareness and confidence, and managing feelings and behaviour.  Lessons are planned in a progressive way, providing foundations for their learning throughout Key Stage 1 and 2.

PSHE in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2:

Our PSHE curriculum is carefully planned, based on the needs of our own pupils’ needs.

We teach key concepts and skills to support pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life, with the skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future.

Rights Respecting Schools and Fundamental British Values are linked throughout the PSHE curriculum, as well as the statutory requirements of teaching relationships, sex and health education. We have weekly assemblies covering current, relevant themes, such as Remembrance Day, Children’s Mental Health Week, Ramadan and Walk to School Week, as well as taking part in numerous national events, such as Anti-Bullying Week, Road Safety Week and Safer Internet Day. In Key Stage 2, children progressively build on the knowledge and development which they have gained in Key Stage 1.


Pupils at Bader Primary School build healthy relationships showing how to be compassionate, show fairness and be respectful of one another. They know how to be healthy and strong physically, know how to look after their bodies, and know how to keep themselves safe. They understand how to live in the wider world as respectful, well-rounded individuals. They understand the world is a wonderful place full of opportunities to achieve their goals.
