Cloverlea offers a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which:

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and

  • prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

  • Makes provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice.

    Cloverlea uses the SEAL – Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning - materials to teach many of the elements of PSHE and also the Trafford Matrix grid. We ensure that the children experience the process of democracy through participation in the school council. We also encourage children to take part in a range of tasks which promote active citizenship, for example charity fundraising and the planning of special school events such as an assembly or open evening. We offer children the opportunity to hear visiting speakers whom we invite into the school to talk about their role in creating a positive and supportive local community. Many themes are taught or reinforced during assembly times.


The aims of PSHE and citizenship are to enable the children:

  • To know and understand what a healthy lifestyle is and to be aware of how to keep safe.

  • To respect others; understanding what makes for good relationships with others including members of the community.

  • To be independent and responsible members of a community such as a school.

  • To be positive and active members of a democratic society.

  • To develop self-confidence and self-esteem, and make informed choices regarding personal and social issues.

  • To promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our children and of society.

  • To prepare children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences they already face and for adult life.

SEAL Planning Grid

The school uses a two year cycle to teach SEAL topics (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning). The 'Say No to Bullying!' unit is taught on a yearly basis to coincide with National No Bullying Week.

Other aspects of PSHE such as body awareness, safety in the home, smoking and drug awareness, democracy, money, etc. are taught across the different year groups.
