PSHE Subject Leader: Miss Burton
At Moorthorpe, PSHE will help us to become confident, secure, caring individuals who show tolerance and respect.
Our PSHE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop the knowledge, self-esteem, confidence and self-awareness to make informed choices and decisions
- identify the characteristics of healthy relationships and how to stay safe online
- can make sense of their own personal and social experiences
- know how to maintain good physical and mental health
- have effective interpersonal relationships
- can understand and manage their feelings and emotions
- understand how society works and the rights and responsibilities involved for members of a democratic society
- be prepared for puberty, and understanding sexual development and the importance of health and hygiene
- use the correct vocabulary to describe themselves and their bodies and experience a positive culture around issues of sexuality and relationships

The work we do in PSHE is taken from the Islington scheme of work, You, Me and PSHE. PSHE also flows through all other curriculum areas. Under the new guidance issued by the DfE, by September 2020, Relationships Education at primary school will be compulsory. We believe that, to be effective, RSE should always be taught within a broader PSHE education programme. RSE enhances and is enhanced by learning related to topics including anti-bullying; keeping safe on and off line; keeping physically and mentally healthy, learning about drugs, alcohol and tobacco; and the development of skills and attributes such as communication skills, managing peer pressure, risk management, resilience and decision making. To see how the topics in our History curriculum are arranged please take a look at our Long Term Plan.
In line with You, Me & PSHE scheme, we have separated the skills that our young citizens need to develop into six strands. Click on each strand to see how the skills progress through the curriculum.
Sex and relationship education
