Why PSHE Matters


 Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. When taught well, PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.

Our PSHE Curriculum

Curriculum changes


In September 2020 changes to the PSHE curriculum were implemented. All children across Key Stages 1 and 2 will participate in relationships and health education as part of their weekly PSHE lessons. Parents may not withdraw children from these lessons. Parents may still request the right to withdraw their child from sex education, you will be notified when these are approaching. The withdrawal request will be discussed in consultation with the Headteacher.


For details of our curriculum including Relationships and Health Education please see the curriculum guides on this page. If you have any queries please speak to your child's teacher.
