Whilst PSHCE education is not a statutory requirement, at Abbott we believe that it promotes the Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural, Mental and Physical development of pupils at our school and prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

We currently follow the Go Givers cross curricular PSHCE and Citizenship programme, raising standards across the curriculum by stimulating children’s imaginations, developing empathy and providing opportunities for critical thinking and problem solving.

The curriculum:

  • Deals with real issues of concern to children
  • Helps children recognise and explore their talents and values
  • Develops understanding towards other people
  • Empowers children to become proactive citizens
  • Raises aspirations and prepares children for the wider world


"Go-Givers places SMSC learning at the heart of the resources, laying a firm foundation for children to develop social, moral, spiritual and cultural learning across cross-curricular lessons."

"Go-Givers puts learners at the heart of the programme in the belief that children learn best when the curriculum is relevant and enjoyable."

At the end of each academic year, children also learn through the Manchester Healthy Schools Partnership programme: ‘Growing and Changing’. This helps children to learn about keeping themselves healthy and safe as well as learning about how our bodies change as we get older. As part of this unit of work, the school also uses the Barnardo’s resource: “Real Love Rocks” addressing issues around grooming and child sexual exploitation.
