Personal, Social and Health education and citizenship enables children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. At Shakespeare Infant School we encourage our children to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider curriculum. We teach them about rights and responsibilities and they learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse multicultural society.

At Shakespeare Infant School our ethos is ‘We Care’. All the children wear this proudly displayed on their school uniform. The ethos underpins our whole curriculum.

Learning Values

At Shakespeare Infant School we teach core life skills through specific learning values.






Emotional Intelligence


These values are encouraged throughout the curriculum. Each topic during the year has an emphasis on 2 of the learning values. To make these accessible and enjoyable for children we have linked a character and story to each learning value.

The stories are read during assembly times and in class when focussing on them in a particular topic. The children are also free to access these whenever they wish.

Turtle Time


To develop the children’s self esteem and well being Key Stage 1 children take part in turtle time each day. Each child will have a number of occasions where it will be their turtle day. On these days the child will receive many compliments from their class and others around the school.  These compliments are written on a certificate and sent home to be shared with parents and families.
