Throughout our Infant School journey we continue to build on skills and knowledge that stimulate discussion and understanding about the world of work.

PSHE (Personal, social, health and economic education)

In PSHE students develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and prepare for life and work in modern Britain.

PSHE also helps develop emotional intelligence, an understanding of their own health including mental health, developing relationships and an understanding of the importance of a healthy diet and exercise in their life. 


Starting PSHE early can help to further increase these skills in later years. We also look at events and activities to support this such as Anti-Bullying Week, charity days and visitors from those in a wide range of careers including vets and firemen.

Rights and Responsibilities, Money and People Who Help Us

Through discussion and debate and using strategies such as P4C, which stands for Philosophy for Children, to stimulate these discussions, students focus on promoting concepts of right vs wrong. Money handling skills are found in the maths curriculum, but the wider concepts of how money is earned, the need for money and understanding costs are discussed in circle time. A wider exploration of the curriculum does feature discussions around jobs and having a job. This tends to focus on the skills needed to perform a job (non-specific) as an adult and will look at building communication skills, critical thinking and collaboration.
