  • Promoting confidence and self-esteem in our learners.
  • Enhancing pupils’ well being and challenge any misconceptions
  • Allowing the children to be open minded and appreciate a diverse community.
  • Supporting our learners in becoming well-rounded members of society.

Prince Avenue pupils will:

  • Develop an understanding of the importance of healthy and respectful relationships with all people.

  • Contribute to deepening understanding of the world around them and foster a respect of people irrespective of background or situation.

  • Learn to live together-to understand one another and appreciate one another.

  • Be taught the importance of kindness, respecting differences and treating everyone equally.

  • Communicate purposefully, confidently and openly in order to effectively express opinions, feelings and emotions.

  • Develop the capacity to make sound decisions when facing risk

  • Be supported to develop resilience and to know how and when to ask for help and how/where to access support

We strive to ensure all young people feel included and that ensures that our students grow up understanding the value and importance of kindness and respect for others and themselves.

Children’s personal, social and emotional development (PSED) is crucial for children to lead healthy and happy lives, and is fundamental to their cognitive development. Underpinning their personal development are the important attachments that shape their social world. Strong, warm and supportive relationships with adults enable children to learn how to understand their own feelings and those of others. Children should be supported to manage emotions, develop a positive sense of self, set themselves simple goals, have confidence in their own abilities, to persist and wait for what they want and direct attention as necessary. Through adult modelling and guidance, they will learn how to look after their bodies, including healthy eating, and manage personal needs independently. Through supported interaction with other children, they learn how to make good friendships, co-operate and resolve conflicts peaceably. These attributes will provide a secure platform from which children can achieve at school and in later life.
