PSHE

Why does PSHE Matter? 

Personal, Social, and Health Education (PSHE) is central to  giving pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they  need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to  become informed, active and responsible British citizens.  

PSHE enables students to understand and respect our  common humanity: it's diversity and it's differences so that  they can go on to form, the effective, fulfilling relationships  that are an essential part of life and learning. 

Safeguarding is a key element of PSHE as pupils learn about  their own identity, risks, decision-making and how to keep  themselves safe. 

PSHE helps pupils to learn to recognise their own value, work  well with others and become increasingly responsible for  their own learning. They can reflect on their experiences and  understand how they are developing personally and socially,  tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural  issues that are part of growing up.  

PSHE doesn’t just exist within the curriculum. The wide  range of activities and experiences that schools offer beyond  the curriculum in which pupils contribute to their school life  and community, are a key part of PSHE. For truly effective  PSHE, the whole school ethos will support the curriculum  and principles. 

 

Within each age group there 12 learning modules that could  be taught in any order over a two-year period. 

The 12 modules are: 

1. Drug Education - including how to manage risk and  peer influences  

2. Exploring Emotions - including how to recognise and  manage feelings and emotions 

3. Being Healthy - including the importance of looking  after our mental health
