PSHE is an integral part of the teaching and learning that we do at Middlestown Primary Academy. We believe wholeheartedly in delivering the social and emotional aspects of learning and these are taught weekly to all children in school. Our assembly rota demonstrates the importance of British values and reinforces the themes of our PSHE curriculum. Our aim is that every member of the school community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring community, whose values are built upon mutual trust and respect for all. We feel that this will prepare our children to become respectful citizens in the future and that they will continue to show these same open and positive attitudes towards people they meet, regardless of their social or cultural background.

Topics covered in PSHE

Below are the topics that are covered in Years 1-6 each term:

PSHE at Middlestown Primary Academy

Learning in Year 1

Year 1 read the book ‘Ruby’s Worry’ and talked about how their feelings made them feel and what they could do to help themselves and others. They then made their own worry monsters.

Learning in Year 5

In PSHE, Year 5 took part in a conscience alley. One child became the character from a short story the children had read, and the other children offered advice on what they thought the character should do. At the end of the conscience alley, the child had to make a decision about what action they should take next.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
