Personal, Social, Health and Ecomonic Education

Our vision for Personal, Social, Health and Ecomonic Education at William Lilley:


Our children are independent, respectful, caring and healthy members of society.  Children learn to manage their behaviour, emotions and interactions with others by applying strategies in everyday life.  Our children are encouraged to be polite, resilient, determined and confident so that they are able to break down the barriers to learning.  As a result of this they will have an understanding of other’s needs, form positive relationships with their peers, develop positive interactions with each other and play a positive role in contributing to school life.
