At Trotts Hill School, we believe that personal, social and health education (PSHE) is crucial in order to enable our children to become healthy, safe, independent and responsible members of society. Our PSHE curriculum aims to help all children understand how they are growing and changing, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues which arise in school, our local community and the wider world. There is a focus on well-being and understanding of the importance of self-care and preservation. Our aim is to ensure that Trotts Hill is a supportive, stimulating and caring school, which has high expected standards of behaviour and manners. Our school behaviours and attitudes to learning are underpinned by our whole school values (PRIDE) and learning behaviours, which are taught through PSHE lessons and whole school assemblies. These values, along with awareness of wellbeing and positive behaviour combine to create a successful learning environment throughout our school.
The children of Trotts Hill school have been busy creating different posters to thank their Key workers.
A great example of how the children are showing kindness to others. Here is a snippet of the posters some children have made.
Trotts Hill have started our Brilliant buttons in the dining room. Different children will receive buttons each day for showing good manners, kindness and also following all of our Trotts Hill values. We are gradually filling up our buttons board!

When I ate my dinner quietly and helped others clear their plates I received a button! - Eleah
Trotts Hill General Election

Anti bullying week 2019
The children focused on kindness and showing respect to others. Each year group completed different activities based around kindness. As part of anti bullying week we also had ' Odd socks day'. The children wore odd socks to celebrate being unique!

Children In Need 2019
This Year as part of Children In Need the children wore their own clothes and donated a pound to the charity. In the morning the whole school took part in our ' Morning Move' with Joe Wicks.
Our new Well-being Area is finished. Today we had a Grand Opening for the new area in assembly and each day this week classes will be going to visit the area as part of their PSHE lessons. We look forward to all using this area to help us with our health and mental well-being.
We have introduced our Buddy Benches across the school. Children can sit on these when they feel lonely, and then other children will be aware that somebody needs a friend to play with.
