PSHE Curriculum

We have invited Parents to share our PSHE (Physical Social and Health Education) curriculum and PSHE policy.

Included in this curriculum is also RSE (Relationships and Sex Education), which becomes statutory in March 2021. 

You can find the whole school overview here and we welcome any feedback or questions via our biannual parents surveys.

Our PSHE Curriculum is guided by the PSHE Asociation Scheme of Work. PLease click on the image on the left to find out more about the resources that we use.

PSHE in the Early Years

The EYFS framework is structured very differently to the national curriculum as it is organised across seven areas of learning rather than subject areas. The aim of this document is to help subject leaders to understand how the skills taught across EYFS feed into national curriculum subjects. This document demonstrates which statements from the 2020 Development Matters are prerequisite skills for PSHE within the national curriculum. The table below outlines the most relevant statements taken from the Early Learning Goals in the EYFS statutory framework and the Development Matters age ranges for Three and Four?Year-Olds and Reception to match the programme of study for relationships and health education in addition to the non-statutory guidance of PSHE.

The most relevant statements for PSHE are taken from the following areas of learning:

• Communication and Language

• Personal, Social and Emotional Development

• Physical Development

• Understanding the World
