Personal, Social Health and Education teaches children to value themselves, to begin to develop personal values and to be aware of, and respond to, the needs of others as well as developing the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work. Through PSHCE we aim to help equip pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives and to become informed active, responsive citizens. Well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. Alongside PSHE children explore the British Values as democracy (responsible freedom of speech), the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of faiths.


 These are taught through:


  • Dedicated PSHE lessons.


  • Cross curricular – through RE lessons, Science lessons, PE lessons and ICT lessons.


  • School Values


  • Enrichment activities e.g. Circle Time or debates


  • Visitors


The core of the PSHE curriculum is taught through stand-alone lessons however supplemented with additional learning through our creative curriculum, assemblies and visitors. The British Values are incorporated in our creative curriculum.


The Programme of Study for PSHE we follow as a school aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team working and critical thinking in the context of three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing).


The National Curriculum states that ‘all schools should make provision for personal, social and health education (PSHE), drawing on good practice'. PSHE education contributes to schools' statutory duties outlined in the Education Act 2002 and the Academies Act 2010 to provide a balanced and broadly-based curriculum and is essential to Ofsted judgements in relation to personal development, behaviour, welfare and safeguarding.


Please see the Long Term Plan to see what your child will be taught over the year.
