St Stephen's Catholic Primary School and Nursery, a Voluntary Academy

Personal, Social and Health Education


At St Stephen's,  personal, social, health and citizenship education is embedded throughout the curriculum.

We aim to help pupils to become confident, independent and responsible citizens who can contribute to the life of the school and community.

Pupils develop the knowledge and understanding they need to lead healthy and safe lifestyles.

They learn to reflect on behaviours and attitudes and develop an understanding of their rights and responsibilities.

At St Stephen's we provide opportunities for pupils to take on roles of responsibility and represent others through our School Council and our Mini Vinnies.
