Personal, Social & Health Education

A passion for dialogue and an openness to listen to new ideas and concepts. A willingness to share thoughts and to learn from others, with an ability to emphasise. An openness and honesty within themselves and with others. An ability to consider society and what’s best for the whole, rather than the self.

About PSHE

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) has in various forms been part of the National Curriculum for schools in the United Kingdom since 2000. The aims of the programme are to help children and young people develop fully as individuals and as members of families and social and economic communities. As of September 2020, most elements of PSHE will be statutory in all schools. This will include health education (covering both physical and mental health) and relationships and sex education (RSE). PSHE is taught in a way 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.

From September 2018 we developed a new and dynamic PSHE curriculum that develops knowledge, skills and understanding of themselves and the world around us.

Pupil Voice

P.S.H.E. helps me to listen to other people’s stories and how they feel.

I like P.S.H.E. because we share our emotions and feelings.

I enjoy P.S.H.E. because we get to learn about diversity and that we should treat everyone equally no matter who they are.
