Clowne Infant & Nursery School

‘We take our children on a journey of discovery, giving them aspirations and engaging them in lifelong learning’




At Clowne Infant and Nursery School PSHE is an integral part of everything that we do and equips pupils with attributes, skills and knowledge they need to support physical, mental and emotional wellbeing in school and beyond.



PSHE Matters Derbyshire

At Clowne Infant and Nursery School our  PSHE curriculum is covered through a planned programme of learning and delivered through discussions, debates, circle time, stories that raise issues, role play and assemblies. To support our teaching of PSHE we use the PSHE Matters Scheme which incorporates and is supported by our school values.


Why does PSHE Matter?

Personal, Social, and Health Education (PSHE) is central to giving pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible British citizens.

PSHE enables students to understand and respect our common humanity: it's diversity and it's differences so that they can go on to form, the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.

Safeguarding is a key element of PSHE as pupils learn about their own identity, risks, decision-making and how to keep

themselves safe.

PSHE helps pupils to learn to recognise their own value, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for

their own learning. They can reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially,

tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.

PSHE doesn’t just exist within the curriculum. The wide range of activities and experiences that schools offer beyond the curriculum in which pupils contribute to their school life and community are a key part of PSHE.

Relationships and Sex Education (RSE).

As part of the PSHE curriculum our children take part in a progressive curriculum of Relationships and Health Education.  From September 2020, it will be compulsory for all primary schools to teach Relationships and Health Education. As a result of this change we have reviewed our PSHE and RSE policies to specifically meet the needs of our children.



Anti-Bullying Week 2021


The theme for Anti-Bullying Week this year was 'One Kind Word'. In a world that can sometimes feel like it’s filled with negativity, one kind word can provide a moment of hope. It can be a turning point. It can change someone’s perspective. It can change their day. It can change the course of a conversation and break the cycle of bullying.


We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating taking part in this year's Anti-Bullying Week. Here are some pictures of what we got up too!

Mental Health Awareness Week 2020-21


At Clowne our mental health and wellbeing is very important to us! Throughout school we thoroughly enjoyed taking part in Mental Health Awareness week and we had lots of fun connecting with nature!

Our local community

As part of PSHE we have been helping our local community. Wider work within our community is supporting our children’s confidence, independence, strength of character and ambition. The school provides pupils with meaningful opportunities to understand how to be responsible, respectful and active citizens who contribute positively to society.
