At Marden Lodge, as part of the broad and balanced curriculum we promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, we prepare pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life while having a duty to keep pupils safe.

PSHE education gives pupils the knowledge, skills, and attributes pupils need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. (PSHE association)
At Marden Lodge we aim to embed a whole-school approach to health and well being, including mental health, enrichment opportunities and life skills.
Our curriculum brings together PSHE Education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning. Teaching strategies are varied and are mindful of preferred learning styles and the need for differentiation. It is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme at the same time.


his is complemented by our whole school Thrive Approach and our six ‘Pillars of Character’ (trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship) which are used to help instill a positive learning environment for the children and staff and a “culture of kindness” making Marden Lodge a safe environment for ALL to learn.

Children at Marden Lodge will have experienced a healthy, happy and safe learning environment and will have developed the knowledge, skills and attributes needed to prepare them in later life. These positives outcomes can help tackle issues that can affect their ability to learn and so can in turn aide their academic success.
