At Manor Infant School we aim to implement a curriculum that is exciting, inspiring, engaging and challenges all learners to work at the limit of their capability to achieve their potential.

The aim of our PSHE curriculum is to address these issue and more, and support our children to manage their lives now and in preparation for the future.
Our PSHE curriculum, in conjunction with our school values, aim to ensure that:
Children's Mental Health Week 2022
