PSHE Curriculum

PSHE education is a planned programme of learning though which pupils acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future. As part of a whole school approach, it develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. We adapt these key themes for our children.

Study for Key Stage 1 based on three ‘core themes’ within which there will be broad overlap and flexibility:
  1. Health and Wellbeing
  2. Relationships
  3. Living in the Wider World
