PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education)


Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education, which includes Sex and Relationships Education (SRE), is a subject through which pupils develop the transferable knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe; to make informed decisions, to manage their lives both now and in the future and achieve their Personal Best. 

The aim for PSHE education is to provide all pupils with: 

Accurate, balanced and relevant knowledge 

Opportunities to turn that knowledge into personal understanding 

Opportunities to explore, clarify and if necessary, challenge their own and others’ values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities. 

The skills, language and strategies they need in order to live healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced lives 

Opportunities to develop positive personal attributes including respect, communication, trust, resilience, honesty, responsibility, problem solving, reflection and curiosity  



The programme of study is based upon three core themes within which there is broad overlap and flexibility. These are:  

Core 1 – Health and Wellbeing 

Core 2 – Relationships 

Core 3 – Living in the Wider World
