++++Welcome to the Crampton Primary School Website++++


At Crampton Primary School we believe happy children become happy learners. 

Through our teaching of PSHE, we meet the key aims of our curriculum:

  • To empower our children to contribute actively to society
  • To develop self-motivated learners who are curious and aspirational about the world they live in
  • To support our school ethos of celebrating equality and diversity


In PSHE we focus on teaching the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships, with particular reference to friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other children and adults. Through the RSE embedded within our PSHE curriculum we teach the children how to be safe and to develop healthy relationships both now and in the future.


Building positive relationships is integral to our school community. Staff lead by example in demonstrating the empathy and kindness that we hope our students will develop throughout their time here, and by building positive relationships with the children and their families.


Our preventative PSHE education helps Crampton children to know how they can support each other, manage their own behaviour and get help for themselves or their friends when they need it. Our curriculum also covers personal development, health & safety, emotional health, anti-bullying, inclusion & equality, children’s rights, behaviour & welfare, Citizenship, British values and Social, Moral, Spiritual, Cultural education (SMSC).


When our children leave Crampton we want to have equipped them with the skills to be respectful and active members of society, who are able to understand and manage their emotions, and are able to look after their physical and mental health and well-being. We teach children the Crampton values to develop their emotional literacy. We hope they will take these values with them throughout their lives, as well as the knowledge and skills they have learned here, so that they are able to be the best versions of themselves that they can be.
