St Mary's Catholic Primary School

Working Together for the Good of Each Other




At St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Personal, Social, Health, and Economic (PSHE) education is embedded within our

overarching curriculum that prepares our children for many different aspects of their lives.  

Our overall goal is to help our children to become well-rounded individuals with strong character, who will eventually go out into the world of adults and be actively and positively involved in society.   In order to do this, we are striving to create a conducive environment around the school and this year we have created our own specific Personal Development Curriculum that is entwined with our academic curriculum.

Our curriculum aims to provide engagement and enrichment and through this, we aim for all children to have equal opportunities to thrive together.

A visit from The Mayor of Wyre

We had a lovely visit today in Year 1 from Andrea Kay, the Mayor of Wyre. The children were in awe and had the opportunity to ask her some questions.

Staying healthy and well


This afternoon we continued our PSHE by looking at ways to stay healthy and well. We brainstormed this as a class and discussed ways to stay safe on-line. We also looked at other ways to stay healthy, including having our emotional needs met. This linked with an exploration of the issues surrounding addiction.  

World Mental Health Week 2022 in Year 1/2


Today, we talked about what mental health actually means and how it is normal to have good and not so good days. We spoke about how we can change these not so good moments in our lives to good ones and what we can do to promote positive mental health in school. We discussed what makes us happy and what we can do to ‘grow’ mentally and emotionally. The children came up with some fabulous ideas such as ‘trying something new’ and ‘getting lost in a good book’.

We then created our class sunflower display to show everyone in school how we can ‘Grow Together in Key Stage One’.

Rainbow Laces


Shackleton class took part in a Rainbow Laces session this morning. The session was designed to show the children that clubs and communities are stronger when everyone feels welcome, and it's down to all of us to make that happen. The program is supported by the Premier League and aims to ensure that all those connected to sports clubs, including supporters, feel safe and welcome, irrespective of sexual orientation or gender identity. During the session, the children enjoyed a competition to design a rainbow laces t-shirt.

Griffin Class - Teamwork is important to help each other succeed!

Wren Class


Teamwork makes the dream work


Our PSHE lesson today focused on teamwork. The task was to pass the hoop around the circle whilst still holding hands. The chain of hands had to remain secure for successful completion of the task. The children had to discuss the task, their group tactic and evaluate their attempts. It was entertaining to watch. 

Charging our battery


A constant theme in our PSHE this term is encouraging the children to think of their mental health and wellbeing in terms of a battery.  We have a designated display board in class to encourage this. The board is themed on the children's film 'Inside Out'. We're trying to promote the idea of looking after our mental health and the steps we can take to give ourselves a boost or a 'charge', just as they would charge a device.  We have a self care poster for the children to look at and some self love activities for them to use. Anybody for a yoga pose? How about a positive mantra? 

Healthy Heads: Healthy Heads is a cross-curricular PSHE initiative that focusses on "whole-child development." Throughout this half term the children in the Griffin class will access learning through storytelling and topical games to promote; Self-esteem/Kindness/Teamwork/Resilience/Positivity.
