Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. It aims to equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions on:

  • drug education,
  • financial education,
  • sex and relationship education (SRE) and the  
  • importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle


Education in Personal Relationships is closely linked to RE and is taught through a cross-curricular, integrated approach as well as through Circle Time. Our aim is that pupils should have high self-esteem, respecting themselves and others, together with the skills necessary to reflect on, develop and sustain relationships. It is concerned with the development of the whole person towards maturity.


We aim to promote a healthy life-style and have worked to improve our school environment, encourage healthy eating, exercise and safety-consciousness, as well as putting into place strategies to improve relationships and attitudes amongst the children. We are a “Healthy School”.            


Sex Education

The Governors are responsible for ensuring Sex Education is delivered in school. Sex Education is taught within the churches teaching on sexual relationships and is integrated into other areas of the Curriculum such as Science and R.E. Puberty is taught in both Years 5 and 6. Parents are invited into school to watch videos, which are to be used as a resource and can ask questions about how aspects of the curriculum are taught.
