SMSC and PSHE

Why PSHE matters

PSHE education gives pupils the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.

 

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.

2020 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 relevant teaching staff and Mrs O'Hare.

for details of our curriculum including Relationships, Health and Sex Education please see the curriculum guides on this page, speak to the year group staff or to the PSHE co-ordinator Mrs Bennett.
