The intent of our PSHE Curriculum at St Anthony’s
Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education at St. Anthony’s aims to develop the whole child. We hope to equip children with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions, tailoring our lessons to the needs of our children. With ever growing pressures on young people, we nurture children’s emotional development and give children space to ask questions in a safe and supportive environment. We will promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of children and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

Our Drugs Education Curriculum
This half term, Year 6’s PSHE lessons have focused upon ‘Weighing up risk.’ At the start of the topic, we could all name a few risks associated with taking drugs. However, after participating in mature discussions, reading different scenarios and completing a workshop with Dave from D:Side, our knowledge and understanding of medical and non-medical (legal and illegal) drugs is excellent. I have been so proud of the maturity the children have shown throughout all these lessons and their work certainly demonstrates their superb understanding now. Well done, Year 6!
To commemorate Mental Health Awareness month, Year 6 have focused on the theme ‘Bringing Nature Back into our Lives.’ We began by discussing all the different feelings and emotions we can have when we begin to feel nervous or anxious and then discussed in detail about all the different ways we can help these feelings and emotions to be reduced. Many ideas already linked back to nature and the importance of getting fresh air away from our anxieties. We all created wonderful posters to evidence how people can bring nature back into their lives….
Leeds Children’s Mayor (LCM) is an annual citizenship project for primary schools that is now entering its 19th year. Run in partnership between the Democratic Services and Voice, Influence and Change Team at Leeds City Council, the project aims to actively engage children in the process of democracy and promote an understanding of their rights and responsibilities. Year 5 children are asked to write a short manifesto about how they would make Leeds a better city for other children, starting with the following line:
“If I were Children’s Mayor of Leeds I would…”
As a class, we voted for our favourite manifesto which become St Anthony's candidate for the year. A panel of children and young people helped to shortlist them down to a final 12 yesterday, selecting who to move forward to the citywide election and voting stage. We are thrilled that our school entry has made it into the final 12! Let campaigning begin...
As part of our PSHE curriculum, Year 5 were visited by Dave from d:side. During our session, we learnt about the dangers of solvents and the different products which contain solvents. We also explored how to deal with peer pressure.

Year 5's Little Book of Hope
As part of our PSHE curriculum, Year 4 were visited by Dave from d:side. During our session, we learnt how alcohol affects the body and discussed why people might decide to drink. We found out about different types of alcohol and explored how to deal with peer pressure when dealing with issues to do with alcohol.
As part of our Collective Worship on the kindness, we reflected upon and recorded examples of where we see this virtue in our daily lives. We have made it our mission to praise others when we see them showing kindness to others.
