At Mere School we believe all our children have the right to succeed, to have high aspirations for their future lives and develop who they are in a respectful environment. Our school ethos is firmly rooted in our school vision- 'We enjoy- we learn- we achieve'.

We are currently reviewing our PSHE and RSE curriculum to ensure that it meets the requirements of the new 2020 statutory changes. This includes a review of the progression in teaching of PSHE and the vocabulary that we would like the children to use throughout the school. This should be complete by July 2020.

PSHE Policy
Physical, Social and Health Education and Citizenship is designed to allow children to increase their understanding of themselves, their relationships and the world around them and to equip them to deal with the challenges and issues which they will face as they grow up.
The 2014 national Curriculum framework states that all schools should make provision for PSHE, drawing on good practice. The PSHE Association underlines the importance of schools developing PSHE that is relevant to their pupils and helps them to develop the essential skills and attributes needed


At Mere school we will seek to use PSHE education to ensure our children have an education that makes provision for their safety and well being within the school day and the wider world. This includes understanding British values and what it means to be British, drug education, financial education, sex and relationship education (SRE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.


To promote the spiritual, moral, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and in society and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

To provide pupils with accurate information regarding health related matters, to help them clarify the attitudes and values, which influence health choices.

To allow pupils to learn and be proud of their achievements by raising their self-confidence, self-worth and self-esteem.

To prepare pupils for the physical and emotional challenges of growing up.

To develop skills in personal relationships, self-esteem, assertiveness, decision-making and problem solving.

To develop a growing understanding of risk and safety and the skills which they require to make themselves safe.

One day Creative came to school to run workshops to support children in keeping safe when using the internet at school and home.

Playing online games can be so much fun, with wonderful worlds to explore and cool characters to meet, but what would happen if you could enter the game for real? The children had lots of fun dressing up as fairy tale characters in a game and deciding what was safe and when to stop and get help.

Reuben: I learnt not to tell people your password
