PSHE and Citizenship

At West Lodge, we believe that education in PSHE and Citizenship enables children to become healthier, more independent and responsible members of society. All pupils in Years 1 to 6 have PSHE lessons weekly, with the pupils in EYFS covering it through the area of Personal, Social and Emotional Development. All pupils (Nursery to Year 6) follow the Cambridge Primary Personal Development Program.

Our pupils are encouraged to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community. We have a very active School Council with members being from Year 2 upwards. Pupils help to organise and contribute towards many charitable and local events.

At West Lodge, the children are taught how society is organised and governed as well as about their rights and responsibilities. This learning is enhanced by trips to interesting and educational places and visiting speakers and organisations are often invited into the school to talk to the children. Our pupils learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse and multi-cultural society.
