Maun Infant and Nursery School

Reach for the stars


Intent Statement

At Maun Infant and Nursery School, personal, social, health and relationship education (PSHRE) is at the heart of our broad and balanced curriculum. It supports our work in SMSC and is threaded throughout the everyday life of the school. 


Our PSHRE curriculum along with our school drivers- identity, resilience and possibilities aims to ensure that our children understand who they are, how to foster positive relationships and how to lead a healthy and happy life. We believe these are the building blocks to becoming a healthy, independent and responsible member of society both now and as they grow through life. This also helps us to address the Prevent agenda. We want all our children to believe that they have the right to be ambitious and to have the skills and knowledge needed to achieve their goals. Embedded throughout the school are our characters for learning based on the Characteristics of Effective Learning. These ensure children remain effective and motivated learners and have a growth mindset.  Our PSHRE curriculum aims to help our children understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Another way we develop the children’s sense of self-worth, is by giving them opportunities to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through our Maun Parliament.

Talking Points

Our school is using the Talking Points schemes of work in Key Stage One to deliver the government guidance on Health and Relationships education. It uses picture books as a starting point to get children talking about their own health and mental wellbeing as well as addressing other issues such as managing money and understanding democracy. Its aim is to develop children’s understanding of themselves, their emotions and how to deal with others. It also teaches children how to stay safe in many situations and who to speak to if they are ever worried or concerned.
