Personal, Social, Health and Economic (P.S.H.E.) Education

PSHE education is a school curriculum subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy, safe and prepared for life and work. When delivered well, PSHE education has an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.

The majority of P.S.H.E. education became compulsory in all schools in September 2020 with the introduction of statutory Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) at key stages 1 and 2.

Statutory guidance outlines what schools must cover, but not all that they should cover as part of broader PSHE provision that also includes economic wellbeing and careers education.

P.S.H.E. is taught across the school continuously during lessons, assemblies, school clubs, school events, Thrive sessions, Thrive assemblies and break times. Furthermore, P.S.H.E. is integrated into our curriculum through SMSC, our values and the principles underpinning our school ethos.

Our aim is to deliver P.S.H.E. through three strands which will focus on developing knowledge, skills and understanding in the areas of;
