Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE) is taught throughout Key Stages 1 and 2 with Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED) being delivered in the Foundation Stage.
The subject aims to develop the skills, knowledge and attributes pupils need to keep themselves healthy and safe as well as building resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, teamwork and critical thinking skills.
All schools are expected to provide PSHE education on the curriculum and the Health Education and Relationships Education aspects become compulsory in primary schools in 2020.
PSHE education is central to everything we do at Thorpe Hesley Primary School and we aim to develop confident, ambitious children who are happy and ready to learn and achieve. It is taught in weekly discrete lessons as well as through cross-curricular links and drop-down days such as anti-bullying day, Children in Need and World Mental Health Day.
