Dogsthorpe Academy


As a school, we aim to enrich the lives of our children by providing them with the skills and opportunities to apply their learning within and beyond the curriculum. Through PSHE, we believe we can enhance children’s education and help them become caring, respectful and confident individuals. The LORIC scheme allows our children to acquire British values and attitudes. Learning to value themselves, respect others, appreciate differences and diversity and feel confident and informed as a British citizen.  

PiXL Wellbeing has been developed to support young people to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing. Exciting resources will educate, inspire and empower young people to look after their wellbeing and lead a healthy, active lifestyle. PiXL Wellbeing works well with the PiXL Primary Edge. 

PSHE and Ofsted 

It has been  highlighted that schools are vital in developing pupils’ health and wellbeing and will be monitored about their provision to support healthier eating, physical activity and to shape healthy habits among young people. Ofsted will evaluate a school’s success in promoting and supporting pupils’ knowledge of how to keep themselves healthy, including through exercising and healthy eating. Inspectors expect to see pupils making informed choices about eating and physical activity and they will assess the school’s culture in terms of promoting this aspect of pupils’ welfare. Inspectors’ will also make judgements on pupils’ personal development, behaviour and welfare.
