We are a member of the PSHE Association. In June 2019, the Department for Education launched the final statutory guidance to accompany introduction of compulsory health education, relationships education and relationships and sex education (RSE) in 2020
PSHE education helps pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage life’s challenges and make the most of life’s opportunities.
There is evidence to show that PSHE education can address teenage pregnancy, substance misuse, unhealthy eating, lack of physical activity, emotional health and other key issues. An effective PSHE programme can also tackle barriers to learning, raise aspirations, and improve the life chances of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged pupils.
Our PSHE Curriculum is taken from the PSHE Association plans. Work is planned appropriately for all classes to enable children to develop personally and socially. Aspects covered include friendships and relating to those around us, feelings and how we cope with them, manners and different social contexts, care of our bodies and keeping healthy, growing up and sex education, the use of medicines and drugs and protecting ourselves in various situations.
Relationships and sex education (RSE) should always be delivered as part of a planned, developmental PSHE education programme. The Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) aspect of PSHE education will be compulsory in all secondary schools from 2020, and 'Relationships Education' compulsory in all primary schools.
Consultation for the new PSHE plans focussing on RSE will be the focus of a parent forum and consultation process in 15th June 2020 4pm.
Much of this work links with the work done by our Mental Health and Wellbeing agenda. Please see
