PSHE & Family Time

Personal Social and Health Education enables children to understand how to lead healthier lives,  become more independent and responsible members of society. We encourage our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community. In so doing, we help to develop their sense of self-worth. We teach them how society is organised and governed. We ensure that the children experience the process of democracy through participation in the school council and actively seek pupil voice in a variety of ways across our curriculum. We teach children about their rights and about their responsibilities. They learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse and multi-cultural society.


At Lapworth school, we teach PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) and Relationships Education  through a programme called SCARF (Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship). Our PSHE curriculum also covers on-line safety which underpins our computing curriculum. 


Family Time

Family Time is a key part of the PSHE programme at Lapworth Primary School.

Family Time sessions are led by year 6 pupils who are trained and equipped to lead pupils across the school on a range of topics ranging from the school's key values (friendship, respect, peace and forgiveness) to internet safety and developing good relationships.

All pupils in the school belong to a 'family'. Each of these families have individual identities beginning with the family name. The seven families are named after a famous and influential person in history. Families are:

The Pankhurst family

The Mandela family

The Armstrong family

The Wright Brothers family

The Keller family

The Churchill family

The Simmonds family


Pupils play team-building games and do art and craft activities and teaching sessions as part of the week's theme. Themes cover a range of issues including British values, being responsible citizens and getting on with one another.


Years 5 & 6 were delighted to be a part of a live BBC lesson in association with Premier League Primary Stars and the National Literacy Trust, a cross-curricular session focusing all about mental health and wellbeing, including positive affirmations, supportive phrases, acts of kindness and more.
