Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. PSHE can encompass many areas of study and we have taken into account the needs of all our pupils in outlining our curriculum coverage.
Our main aim is that our PSHE education programme equips our pupils with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.
Our PSHE education programme builds on the statutory content outlined in the national curriculum and in statutory guidance on: drug education, financial education, relationship and sex education (SRE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.
We have chosen to use the ‘My Life’ PSHE programme published by Collins. This is a complete PSHE course for children age 5–11, providing schools with a Scheme of Work for the primary years.
The programme provides structured progression so children build up their understanding of health, relationships, safety and social issues in age-appropriate steps. It encourages personal development of important qualities such as resilience, responsibility and wellbeing.
Our RSE curriculum is delivered through ‘A Journey in Love’ recommended by the Liverpool Archdiocese.
