Personal, Social and Health Education including RSE

Our PSHE curriculum is designed to allow pupils to understand how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way. We begin our journey by looking at the children themselves through the topic of ‘Being me’. Our curriculum then moves through the challenges they face as part of an increasingly complex world that presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. Our teaching equips children with the knowledge and skills to be able to manage these by asking questions, identifying challenges and risks and being able to explain how they will positively deal with the challenges growing up and the world around them presents. We have used themes to support our pupils further in understanding and making those important decisions. These are:

  • Welcome to Yorkshire
  • Influencers
  • Treasure


We have designed a progression of skills to allow our pupils to become proficient in:

  • Questioning the world around them
  • Understanding the challenges and risks around them
  • Making decisions to deal with the challenges the world around them presents


Our entire curriculum, including PSHE, promotes opportunities to be Challenged, build Resilience, experience Enrichment and explore the wider World (#CREW).

Stakeholders have identified that our pupils lack confidence and life experiences. To ensure our pupils all reach their full potential, we have designed our PSHE curriculum with a focus on these specific barriers which include:

  • Building confidence, stamina and independence
  • Developing oracy and extending vocabulary
  • Extending their knowledge of the world beyond their home
