At Spring Vale, children are taught about the importance of mental and physical health, including self-esteem and body image. We believe it is crucial to build effective citizens through teaching about positive relationships, keeping safe, behavioural norms and setting aspirational goals. Each half term, pupils in each year group are also given an ‘In the News…’ lesson, focusing on key events and issues from the world they live in. We believe giving children these learning opportunities sets them up for further learning in the future.
