Learning Together for Life'

At Hartford Manor our aim is that children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future

As part of a whole school approach, PSHE education develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. This is taught through planned, teacher directed SEAL sessions alongside constistent behaviour expectations and routines.

We are very proud of the behaviour of our wonderful children at Hartford Manor.

‘Pupils’ behaviour in and around school is outstanding. Older pupils are wonderful ambassadors for the school and act as caring peer mentors for younger children’ – Ofsted March 2013.

A number of systems are in place to ensure consistency in expectations and behaviour management throughout the school. Please see our Behaviour Policy for further information.



The units of study are as follows:

New Beginnings: This theme focuses on developing children’s knowledge, understanding and skills in four key social and emotional aspects of learning: empathy, self-awareness, social skills and motivation.

Getting on and falling out: This theme focuses on developing children's knowledge, understanding and skills in three key social and emotional aspects of learning: empathy, managing feelings (with a focus on anger) and social skills.

Say no to bullying: This theme aims to develop and revisit four of the key social and emotional aspects of learning covered in previous themes through a focus on bullying – what it is, how it feels, why people bully, how we can prevent and respond to it, and how children can use their social, emotional and behavioural skills to tackle this crucial problem.

Going for goals: This theme focuses primarily on the key aspect of motivation, with a subsidiary focus on self-awareness. It gives an important opportunity for all children’s abilities, qualities and strengths to be valued.

It’s good to be me: The theme is about understanding our feelings as well as considering our strengths and weaknesses as learners. It aims to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in three key social and emotional aspects of learning: self-awareness, managing feelings and empathy

Sex and Relationship Education

The aim of SRE is to provide children with age appropriate information, explore attitudes and values and develop skills in order to empower them to make positive decisions about their health related behaviour.  This should take place with consideration of the qualities of relationships within families.
