The staff of Brighton Avenue Primary School believe that Personal, Social and Health Education and Citizenship (PSHE+C) is a vital part of the curriculum.  It promotes a healthy lifestyle, which in turn helps to improve the quality of life and the environment for all our children and their families. 



PSHE promotes children's personal and social development, including health and well-being, through self-awareness, positive self esteem and confidence to:-

  • Stay as healthy as possible
  • Keep themselves and others safe
  • Have worthwhile and fulfilling relationships
  • Respect the differences and diversities between people
  • Develop independence and responsibility
  • Play an active role as members of a democratic society
  • To make the most of their own and others abilities


Citizenship Aims

Through citizenship, we aim for children to develop:-

  • Social and moral responsibility
  • Community cohesion
  • Global citizenship

For Friendship Friday as a school we looked at what makes a good friend.  As a school we all took part in a range of activities catered for each Key Stage.  As a school, we have shown that friends can come from different families types, different abilities, disabilities and different religions.  Take a look!

Remembrance Day 11.11.2020

On the 11th November all the children in the school took part in the Nova Project to paint a pebble and place it within the school grounds to show our respect to all the men, women, children and animals who lost their lives during the war.  We all took part in a 2 minute silence to remember them.
