A high-quality education in PSHE opens doors to learning the knowledge and skills which held learners lead happy, healthy and independent lives as responsible citizens within a global community. Key knowledge about finance, drugs, health, citizenship, personal safety, relationships and sex is delivered in an age-appropriate way each year, with themes developed year on year to enable learners to flourish in PSHE.
A Long Whatton citizen is given the opportunity through our Personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) to become a healthy, independent and responsible member of society. They understand how they are developing personally and socially, and have the skills to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that they will face in their future. They are respectful of others and understand, and are proud of what makes them unique. They understand their rights and responsibilities and have an appreciation of what it means to be a member of a diverse society. They have a sense of self-worth and play a positive role in contributing to school life and to the wider community.
A Long Whatton citizen has the tools to become a resilient, courageous individual, who are able to recognise the needs of their own mental and physical wellbeing. They understand where they can access support from and are compassionate towards the needs of others. They are emotionally intelligent and have the ability to articulate their feelings in order to maintain good mental health.
A Long Whatton citizen understands how to form and maintain positive relationships with others. They confidently share their opinions and are respectful of the views of others, understanding that these may be different to their own. They recognise how to keep themselves and others safe. They value themselves and have the assertiveness to make their own decisions, both today and in the future.
We follow the PSHE Cambridge curriculum in school and pair this with one lesson per half term of the 'No Outsiders' programme. 
Everyone's Welcome

At Long Whatton, we are committed to preparing our children for life in the diverse society, which is modern Britain today. We are proud to be an inclusive school that embraces equality and diversity - something that is strongly reflected in our core vision, values and ethos. Therefore, in order to enable us to further promote an ethos of inclusion and tolerance, we have decided to incorporate the Local Authority’s ‘Everyone’s Welcome’ programme into our PSHE lessons.


What is ‘Everyone’s Welcome’?

'Everyone's Welcome' is a whole school approach that uses the ‘No Outsiders’ resources and framework to teach children about equality and diversity, in line with British Values, Ofsted guidelines and the Equality Act (2010).

‘No Outsiders’, a scheme that provides teachers with a curriculum that promotes equality for all sections of the community, was written originally in 2015 by practising Deputy Headteacher, Andrew Moffat. His work to promote equality has been globally celebrated. Further information about the No Outsiders approach can be found at


Teaching and Learning Approaches

The ‘Everyone's Welcome’ programme uses storybooks, lesson plans and assemblies to create and support the development of a whole school community that embraces and celebrates all forms of difference. The scheme includes five lesson plans for every primary school year group (EYFS- Y6) based upon a selection of 35 picture books. Issues addressed include gender and gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, disability and age.


 Benefits to pupils

Our commitment to community cohesion through promoting understanding and acceptance of difference means that the programme will enhance our current PSHE work exceptionally well. It will provide a whole school approach that promotes and celebrates diversity and will help us to create an environment where children feel happy and excited about living in modern Britain.

Benefits to pupils will include:

· Increased self-esteem from a feeling of belonging

· Resilience from knowing who they are

· Preparation for life in modern Britain

· Reduce potential for radicalisation

 · Whole school approach with difference and diversity celebrated throughout the school
