PSHE is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Evidence shows that well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils.
Working with the PSHE Association and developing our curriculum around the statutory guidelines outlined in the Education Act 2002 and the Academies Act 2010, our PSHE curriculum aims to provide a balanced and broadly-based curriculum in relation to personal development, behaviour, welfare and safeguarding. The relationships and health aspects of PSHE will be compulsory in all schools from 2020.
Our spiral curriculum focuses on developing skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team work and critical thinking in the context of learning grouped into three core themes: health and well-being, relationships and living in the wider world.
Further information on our PSHE curriculum breakdown can be found on each year group’s curriculum documents.
