PSHE - Intent, Implementation And Impact



Our PSHE curriculum aims to help children to make healthy choices through a sequential and coherent curriculum of health, well-being, relationships and drugs education. Our RSE curriculum aims to help children to feel comfortable and confident in their own skin, understand their bodies, express emotions safely and manage their behaviours.




PSHE is taught weekly in discreet lessons which meet the statutory and non-statutory requirements of the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum within the three strands: Relationship Education, Health Education and Sex Education.  We have a whole school approach and use programmes which show progression and continuity of learning: ‘SCARF’ from Coram Children’s Charity; ‘My Feelings, Friends & Family’ from Going OffThe Rails RSE Consultancy; Protective Behaviours (Taking Care) Programme.  Every SCARF lesson plan has links to the PSHE Association’s Programme of Study recommended learning opportunities; lesson plans are organised under the PSHE Association's programmes of Study core themes and topics enabling the whole school to cover the same themes each term.  Together these programmes increase awareness of the sources of help and enable pupils to develop the confidence and skills required to use them.  In addition, emotional coaching is implemented and supported throughout school with the Zones of Regulation and Thrive programmes.  Visitors and Theme Week Assemblies further enhance the learning experience for all of our children




Our PSHE curriculum reflects the needs of our pupils, supports the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our pupils and promotes British values. It aims to provide children with the knowledge, skills and understanding to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.  Children are not assessed against expectations in PSHE, neither is their work formally marked as it forms a personal record of their own thoughts and reflections; verbal feedback only is given.
