PSHE post-September 2014

Guidance from the Department for Education (DfE) says that personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is “a non-statutory subject”. The DfE’s framework document for the new National Curriculum in England explains that whilst PSHE is not part of the National Curriculum; all schools should make provision for PSHE. The PSHE Association, in the absence of new programmes of study from the DfE, has produced a programme of study for Key Stages 1 and 2 based on three core themes. These are:

  • Health and wellbeing
  • Relationships
  • Living in the wider world

At St Peter’s, we will be reviewing our PSHE programme of study across the next 18 months. However, many of the topics included in the three themes will be learnt about in our day to day interactions, in other subject lessons, and especially in our RE lessons, this is true particularly of our approach to Sex and relationships education. Please see our Education for Relationships Policy for further information.
