Personal, social, health and economic PSHE education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. All schools should teach PSHE, drawing on good practice.
PSHE is a non-statutory subject. To allow teachers the flexibility to deliver high-quality PSHE the government consider it unnecessary to provide new standardised frameworks or programmes of study. PSHE can encompass many areas of study.
Schools should seek to use PSHE education to build, where appropriate, on the statutory content already outlined in the national curriculum, the basic school curriculum and in statutory guidance on: drug education, financial education, sex and relationship education (SRE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.
Here at St. Francis, much of our PSHE curriculum is also delivered through the everyday teaching of our faith and through Religious Education lessons.
