Grazeley Parochial CE (Aided) Primary School

'Be courageous; Be strong; Do everything in love'

Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE)

Our children are shown how to treat others with love and respect, and approach difficult decisions with courage, so that they can play a positive and successful role within our society, both as children now, and as adults in the future.

Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE)

At Grazeley Primary School we put PSHE at the core of our curriculum enabling our children to grow into healthy, confident, independent, and responsible adults. Our children are shown how to treat others with love and respect, and approach difficult decisions with courage, so that they can play a positive and successful role within our society, both as children now, and as adults in the future.

We help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and give them opportunities to explore important moral, social and cultural issues. We enable our children to learn about rights and responsibilities, and provide them with a strong understanding of the diverse world around them.

We support our children to play a positive role in society, enabling them to contribute to both the school and the wider community, actively seeking ways they can make a positive difference. We aim to develop a strong sense of self-worth and resilience in our children, preparing them for the challenges of becoming global citizens in an everchanging world.

What is PSHE Education?

PSHE Education (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) is a planned programme of learning through which children learn the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to successfully manage their lives. giving them resilience and hope for the future.  PSHE Education develops the qualities and attributes children need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society as they learn how to be a member of a loving community.

At Grazeley Parochial Primary School, we use the PSHE Association’s Programme Builder planning and resource recommendations to support our teaching. The programme builder takes a thematic approach to primary PSHE education, covering all three core themes of the Programme of Study (Health and Wellbeing; Relationships; and Living in the Wider World)

This approach offers flexibility that has enabled us to weave PSHE into the core of our curriculum whilst using accredited, quality resources. The following documents summarise the content of the PSHE curriculum, showing what topics are taught where across the school, and the resources used.

Children in FS are also taught PSHE but this is through the Foundation Stage Curriculum. More detail can be found about this in the Foundation Stage area of our website.

Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)

This forms a part of the PSHE curriculum at Grazeley Primary School. The summary document below shows where these elements are taught within the PSHE curriculum.
