PSHE and RHE
Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. It helps children and young people to stay healthy and safe, while preparing them to make the most of life and work. From September 2020, Relationships and Health Education (RHE) became statutory across all primary schools and this is taught in our school combined with PSHE curriculum as well as covering aspects of SMSC, Citizenship and British Values.
This is to ensure that children’s skills are progressively built upon across each cycle and year group and that knowledge is embedded following the themes of Relationships, Living in the Wider World and Health and Wellbeing. These themes are broken down into three strands which are also recurrent across each year group: Families and Friendships, Safe Relationships, Respecting Ourselves and Others, Belonging to a Community, Media Literacy and Digit Resilience, Money and Work, Physical Health and Mental Wellbeing, Growing and Changing and Keeping Safe. Each topic has links to areas of the new statutory requirements. The subject is taught in many ways including discussions, stories or relevant group activities ensuring all children can participate. To ensure a safe environment there are ground rules in place.
