Personal, Social and Health Education




Through Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE), we aim to give our children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible British Citizens. PSHE enables children to understand and respect our common humanity: it's diversity and it's differences so that they can go on to form, the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.





PSHE is taught using the PSHE Matters scheme of work. There are twelve learning modules are taught following the order on our long term topic plan and follow a two year rolling programme at each age group (KS1, lower KS2 and upper KS2)

The twelve modules that are covered are:

  • Drug Education - including how to manage risk and peer influences
  • Exploring Emotions - including how to recognise and manage feelings and emotions
  • Being Healthy - including the importance of looking after our mental health
  • Growing up - including the Sex Education element
  • Changes - including loss
  • Bullying Matters - including how to ask for help
  • Being Me - including identity and community
  • Difference and Diversity - including challenging stereotypes
  • Being Responsible - including looking after the environment
  • Being Safe - particularly featuring cyber, gaming and CSE
  • Relationships - including what is a healthy relationship
  • Money Matters - including enterprise

The British Values of respect, tolerance, individual liberty, the rule of law and democracy run throughout the PSHE Matters scheme of work.


The following ground rules are used in PSHE sessions to enable children to feel safe and secure:

  • We will not ask each other personal questions.
  • We have the right to ‘pass’ if we do not wish to comment.
  • We agree to join in and make a positive contribution.
  • We will listen to each other without interrupting.

Links to learning in PSHE are made explicit by staff in other subjects. The PSHE curriculum and the Collective Worship plan are closely linked and reinforce many of the same messages.

PSHE, BV, SMSC and Rights Respecting Schools displays throughout school reinforce the PSHE curriculum enabling children to make links.




  • Children will demonstrate and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual respect, Rule of law and Liberty.
  • Children will demonstrate a healthy outlook towards school – attendance will be in-line with national and behaviour will be good.
  • Children will achieve age related expectations across the wider curriculum.
  • Children will become healthy and responsible members of society
  • Children will be on their journey preparing them for life and work in modern Britain.
