Davyhulme Primary School, Davyhulme
Children's Mental Health Week 1st - 7th February 2021 | Partial Opening and Restricted Admissions - We continue to operate and apply a strict approach to all applications for school places . At present we have 131 pupils ( 25% ) in school with a further 48 families wanting 62 places. The new variants of the virus pose an increased level of threat according to the media of between 50% and 70% so our control measures across society should feel 50% - 70% stricter than the first wave back in March ...and it does not feel like that ' out and about '. Despite our best efforts we have had to Quarantine two ( empty classrooms ) for 72 hours as a precautionary step on advice from Trafford cleaning services.School will be able to provide more school places when staff have had  vaccines and feel safer. If a member of your household goes for a Covid test please do not send the children into school until you have the results of the test and they are negative.

PSHCE

"PSHCE education is a planned programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives. As part of a whole school approach, PSHE develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society." The PSHE Association

Section 2.5 of the National Curriculum framework document states that:

"All schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice."

At Davyhulme Primary School, we teach the key skills through the following seven areas:

  • Relationships
  • Health
  • Sex & Relationships Education
  • Financial Capability
  • Citizenship
  • Enrichment Activities

PSHE  is embedded throughout daily life at Davyhulme Primary School. We model positive relationships, self- image and communication skills with others in all our day-to-day interactions, as well as teaching skills explicitly in discrete subjects such as Circle Time, P.S.H.E./Values lessons and assemblies. Children also experience these key skills through RE, history, geography, English, maths, art, music and science, as well as outdoor learning, educational visits and links with the wider community.

Coverage of these areas, and the associated social skills from the framework, are already embedded here at Davyhulme Primary School. We aim to ensure that we produce well-rounded, happy and healthy children - ready for the wider world.

Sex and Relationship Education

We follow our Growing and Changing Policy which has been set up in accordance with guidance from our L.E.A. We use the living and growing resources, also linked to science, which provides focused learning for all year groups covering all areas of sex and relationship education.

Drugs Education

The school has a policy for the delivery of Drugs education that is cross-curricular.
