'Together we are winners'





Our Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is interwoven through all areas of our curriculum and equips children to live healthy, safe, productive and balanced lives. Our delivery of PSHE education helps children and young people to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn, such as anxiety and unhealthy relationships.


We believe PSHE education contributes to personal development by helping children to build their confidence, resilience and self-esteem, and to identify and manage risk, make informed choices and understand what influences their decisions. It enables them to recognise, accept and shape their identities, to understand and accommodate difference and change, to manage emotions and to communicate constructively in a variety of settings.


As a school, we follow the PSHE Association. We have chosen this as it 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) over the school year, with three topics per half term. This approach allows different year groups to work on similar themes at the same time, building a spiral programme year on year, whilst offering flexibility in terms of medium term planning. See below for our long-term overview. 




Although Relationships and Health Education is now compulsory in primary schools, some schools also choose to teach some aspects sex education, as recommended by the DfE. This is primarily because it provides another layer of child protection.


Following extensive consultation with the wider school community, including staff, parents/carers and governors, at Ravensworth Terrace Primary School, we have decided to teach some aspects of RSE. For more details about this curriculum and how it will be taught, please read the policy below.
