PSHE & RSE

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”

 

At Boundary Primary School PSHE is at the heart of everything we do! We deliver a personalised curriculum, which is accessible to all, maximising the outcomes for every child in our care.  As a result of this all children at our school become happy, healthy, resilient, tolerant, and respectful independent citizens who understand how they are developing personally and socially.  We provide children with the confidence to tackle many moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.  We give all children the opportunity for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society.

Poppy Art

Poppy Art

As part of the work we do for Remembrance Day, we have produced poppy art using water colours. We looked at lots of different examples of poppies and chose our own way of drawing them. We then drew and painted the poppies over a war poem, which we read and discussed.
