Northside Primary School - Achieving and celebrating success where every child matters


Personal, Social and Health Economic Education focuses on the emotional health, well-being and welfare of the children in school. It deals with real life issues that can affect children and young people, their families and their communities. It also engages with the social and economic realities of their lives, experiences and attitudes.

By following the Barnet Schools Wellbeing Programme our aims are to:

  • Develop confidence and responsibility to make the most of their abilities;
  • Prepare children to play an active role as citizens in the in school and the wider community;
  • Support the children’s understanding of how to live a healthy lifestyle;
  • Support children with how to make good relationships and learn to respect differences between people.
  • Prepare children for the opportunities, responsibilities and 
experiences of modern life.
