Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE) is taught throughout Key Stages 1 (Years 1/2) with Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED) being delivered in the Foundation Stage.
The subject aims to develop the skills, knowledge and attributes pupils need to keep themselves healthy and safe as well as building resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, teamwork and critical thinking skills.
All schools are expected to provide PSHE education on the curriculum and the Health Education and Relationships Education aspects become compulsory in primary schools in 2020.
PSHE education is taught in weekly discrete lessons as well as through cross-curricular links and drop-down days such as Anti-Bullying Day/Week, Kindness Day, Children's Mental Health Week and Children In Need.
These are some of the websites we use to support the teaching of PSHE. You might like to share some of these with your child at home too.
Here are some examples of the work we have been doing in our PSHE sessions.
These are difficult and unprecedented times for everyone and with school closures we are aware that supporting our children's emotional health and well-being is now more important than ever. Below we have compiled some useful websites which aim to offer ways you can support your child and open a dialogue about COVID-19.
These are examples of activities that we would deliver in the classroom. Please click on the links below to view the lesson plans.
