Garlinge Primary School and Nursery, Westfield Road, Margate, Kent, CT9 5PA


The Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship aspects of school life contribute to the development of a child's individual identity and sense of self-esteem, and to their emotional maturity and readiness to learn.

At Garlinge we seek to prepare each child to play a valuable and active role in society, and prepare them for the opportunities, challenges, experiences and responsibilities of adult life.

PSHE lessons involve a high level of interaction, where each pupil has planned opportunities for learning through:

  • The development of a trusting relationship between the teacher and the pupils enabling the consideration of sensitive issues to take place
  • Collaborative work
  • Circle time activities
  • Opportunities for reflection
  • Respect for each genuinely made contribution
  • Negotiation
  • Philosophical enquiry

PSHE is taught through three core themes:

  • Living in the Wider World
  • Relationships
  • Health and Well-being
