PSHE at Marlborough House is an all-encompassing subject that is taught both within the formal curriculum and outside the classroom. All children from Nursery to Year 8 are provided with carefully planned and co-ordinated opportunities to explore attitudes and values that come under ‘Valuing Self and Others’. Children learn about themselves as growing and changing individuals with their own experiences and ideas, and also as members of their communities, sharing common thoughts and feelings with their peers. Marlborough House children are taught about the wider world and the importance of playing a part as a global citizen.

They take great care to cover all aspects of the curriculum including PSHE and the promotion of fundamental British values
