Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education

The PSHE curriculum has been designed in accordance with the latest PSHE guidance from the National Curriculum. The objectives for Key Stage 2 are taught across a two-year cycle, enabling all aspects to be covered twice before children leave at the end of year 6.

The curriculum is divided into three key concepts:

Health and Wellbeing


Living in the wider world

The key concepts are then further broken down into themes, and each theme is taught through a whole school themed week. To ensure the updated statutory elements of RSE are taught thoroughly, we follow the Christopher Winters scheme of work, which is taught in all year groups in the summer term.

As part of the PHSE curriculum, a variety of visitors from the local community are invited into school to meet with the children and provide first hand experiences for them. A wide range of PHSE objectives are also met outside of the PSHE curriculum, through assemblies, class discussions and school events. The school meets together weekly to celebrate achievements and discuss current issues in an assembly. We support a wide range of charities throughout the school year as part of our School Council programme and elements of our PHSE curriculum are covered through supporting the community.

Evidence of PSHE teaching and learning is kept in individual year group PSHE scrap books. This incorporates photos, activities, examples of work completed and pupil voice.
