At The Southwater Infant Academy we place a high emphasis on children’s personal, social and emotional learning to enable our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We aim to develop their knowledge, skills and attributes so they can understand the choices they face as they grow up, how to make healthy and safe choices and prepare for life and work in a modern and diverse Britain.
Across each year, children learn through topics such as ‘New Beginnings’, ‘Going for Goals’, ‘Good To Be Me’, ‘Relationships’, ‘Getting On and Falling out’ and ‘Changes’, with UNICEF rights and British Values embedded throughout. Children will have the opportunity to explore these topics through discussion, drama and shared experiences, enabling them to apply the skills and strategies they have learnt to different and sometimes challenging situations. Topics and lesson content are adapted to the needs of each group ensuring that sensitive issues are made accessible in a safe and supportive environment.
Our children are healthy, independent and responsible members of the academy and the wider community. They show respect, resilience and kindness towards others and understand the impact of their choices.
