Image preview


We aim to provide a strong and caring atmosphere where moral and spiritual values are developed throughout the whole curriculum. We believe that by developing the ‘whole person’ we will enable individuals to lead a rewarding, satisfying and fulfilling life. Personal, Social ,Health  and Economic Education and Citizenship, provides the opportunity for all members of the school community to explore and understand their relationship to themselves, others and to the world we live in.


At Morton Church of England Primary School we teach PSHE and Citizenship through 3 strands of knowledge, skills and attitudes. Through All 3 key stages, the areas for study are:

  1. Developing confidence and responsibility and making the most of their abilities.
  2. Preparing to play an active role as citizens.
  3. Developing a healthy safe lifestyle
  4. Developing good relationships and respecting the differences between people.

The school has adopted the Cambridgeshire Primary Personal Development Programme as our framework for delivering PSHE. This is a spiral curriculum.

Topics covered included:

-Physical and Mental wellbeing

-Healthy choices

-Sex and relationships education

-Drug education

-Personal safety including e-safety and bullying


-Economic wellbeing


In addition to these weekly sessions we also plan in enrichment activities to raise the profile of key areas we feel our pupils need to develop.

These have included;

-Visitors from health professionals regarding growing and changing

-Year 5-safer cycling course

-Road safety sessions

-'Moving on' sessions with our PCSO

-Lunchtime clubs to develop confidence and friendships


Our eldest pupils go on a residential visit to Caythorpe Court. This visit is chosen for the personal development opportunities as well as the educational experiences. During this week we often see the biggest leaps of confidence!
