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
