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. PSHE education also helps pupils to achieve their academic potential.
Most of PSHE education became statutory for all schools from September 2020 under the Children and Social Work Act 2017. This includes
Relationships Education at Key Stages 1 and 2, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) at key stages 3 and 4, and Health Education in both primary and secondary phases.
The Department for Education published Statutory Guidance for Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education in June 2019. This sets out what schools must cover from September 2020 (though not all they should cover as part of broader PSHE education).
At Beaudesert we follow the updated edition of the PSHE Association Programme of Study for PSHE education. This allows us to provide a comprehensive programme that integrates, but is not limited to, this statutory content. Our broader PSHE programme also covers economic wellbeing, careers and enterprise education, as well as education for personal safety, including assessing and managing risk.
This Programme of Study sets out learning opportunities for key stage 1 to 5, based on three core themes:
CORE THEME 1: HEALTH AND WELLBEING
CORE THEME 2: RELATIONSHIPS
CORE THEME 3: LIVING IN THE WIDER WORLD
