PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education)

PSHE education is a planned programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives. (The PSHE Association, 2014)

The National Curriculum states that all schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice. The key areas of PSHE education are covered throughout the primary phases and in preparation for secondary school. We have defined these key areas as:

* sex and relationship education

* drug, alcohol and tobacco education

* physical health, including healthy eating and physical activity

* mental health

* behaviour and safety

* financial capability

* citizenship

Our PSHE scheme of work has been developed using Hampshire County Council guidelines and advice from the PSHE Association. The planned PSHE programme is taught both discreetly, through other curriculum areas and within the whole federation ethos. Our PSHE curriculum supports our ability to fulfil our responsibility as laid out in the PREVENT Duty.

The aims of PSHE are to enable children to:

* know and understand what constitutes a healthy lifestyle

* be aware of safety issues

* understand what makes for good relationships with others

* have respect for others

* be an independent and responsible member of our school community

* develop self-confidence and self-esteem enabling them to make informed choices

* be positive and active members of the wider community
