Sea View Primary School

Reaching new horizons



PHSCE and Thrive at Sea View

The purpose of PHSCE

At Sea View Primary School, we understand that pupils must be provided with an education that prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. A key part of this relates to relationships education, which must be delivered to every primary-aged pupil. Primary schools also have the option to decide whether pupils are taught sex education. State-funded primary schools are also required to teach health education.

Relationships education focusses on giving pupils the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships, and to build their self-efficacy. Health education focusses on equipping pupils with the knowledge they need to make good decisions about their own health and wellbeing.

The Thrive approach

Using a positive relational stance with children, through play, creativity and the arts, the Thrive Approach helps them make the most of their learning opportunities.

Seizing these, and meeting developmental needs at the right-time, can help pupils become more resilient, open to learning and able to thrive.

It is this approach that ultimately makes a difference in the lives of pupils and enables them to fulfil their full potential.


Our PSHE curriculum in the Foundation stage helps children to build their confidence, resilience and self-esteem and to identify and manage risk. They develop the skills to make informed choices and understand what influences their decisions. It enables children to respect themselves, others and to celebrate diversity whilst managing their emotions and communicating effectively. Developing an understanding of themselves, empathy and the ability to collaborate with others helps children to form and maintain good relationships and better enjoy and manage their lives.

Sending kind messages


Celebrating Diversity

The Little Red Hen - working as a team.

Colour Me Happy


We shared the story, 'Giraffe's Can't Dance', and talked about how everyone is different. We shared our ideas about what we are good at and noticed that we are all good at different things. 

Giraffes Can't Dance

We drew pictures of Gerald and wrote a sentence to say what we are good at.

We shared the story, ‘The princesses have a ball’, and discussed how the girls were playing basketball instead of dancing. We talked about how not all boys like the same sports, and how not all girls like dancing. We discussed how it’s ok for us to enjoy different things to our friends.

We shared this story and discussed how the joys and difficulties of making and keeping friends. During circle time we talked about our feelings such as when we feel worried in school and how we can overcome these. Children suggested that if we help each other it will make us feel happy.

We painted portraits to show how happy we are when we make friends.

Look at our display!

Year One

During a thrive time in year 1 we have explored different emotions with the story The Colour Monster. We looked at our brains and how they react to different emotions. Finally we made worry jars with all the different things that can make us worry. 

Year Two

We have been learning about the people whose job it is to keep up safe and how they look after us. We names some of our own trusted grown ups and discussed what they do to care for us.

Year Three

Understanding our 'Golden Rules'.

We have been working on understanding our golden rules and what this looks like in our school. This week we look at 'Be kind to each other.'  We had a bank of kind and unkind statements to discuss with our partner and sort them into two groups.  After we sorted the statements and discussed them, we made a kind message to give to the friend we were working with.  It definitely put big smiles on our faces!

Let yourself and others learn and play

Today we played picture eye spy together. We had to work out the rules with our partner, decide how somebody would win and work out a way of recording the scores. It was a lot of fun and we learnt a lot about working together. 

Year Four

Our topic of "Digital Kindness" allowed us to explore what the term respect means online and how we can show respect. We have offered advice as to what messages are appropriate/inappropriate to send our friends. We have also started to evaluate the reliability of the things we come across online and know how we can keep ourselves safe online 

Year Five

Thinking Positive:

As part of this topic we explored how important it is to celebrate our differences. We also looked at ways in which we could make a difference inspired by the COP26 Summit and Show Racism the Red Card.

The Best Part of Me

Show Racism the RED Card.

Our Planet Promises.

Rules and Laws.

Inspired by our quality text, "THE NIGHT BUS HERO", we looked at the rules in our society and took part in a  heated debate as part of our own Prime Ministers Questions. We then wrote speeches expressing our views on homelessness.

Year Six

We had the opportunity to discuss our worries and find ways to deal with them. We created worry jars, which included worries we have and then we made our own Worry-Buster Guides to find ways to shrink our worries.
