PSHE - Personal Social Health Education

The Department for Education have made the Health Education
and Relationships Education aspects of PSHE (personal, social,
health and economic) education compulsory in all primary
schools from September 2020.


As a part of your child’s educational experience at North Walkden
Primary, we already promote personal wellbeing and development
through a comprehensively taught programme of Personal, Social,
Health and Economic (PSHE) education through our You, Me and
PSHE scheme. This gives our pupils the knowledge, understanding,
attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive
and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.


The new guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping
children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of
topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing,
safeguarding and healthy relationships.


By learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of
growing up, it will give young people the information, skills and
positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and will
help them take responsibility for their own well-being. All of
these areas are already covered in our scheme and will be 
delivered in an age-appropriate way and meet the needs of all
pupils in the class


Therefore, we have reviewed our RSE curriculum and policy so we
can be sure our RSE provision is appropriate for our pupils based
on:
 Our pupils’ age and maturity levels, as well as their
cultural and religious backgrounds
 The values of our school community
 Every pupil’s learning needs
 What pupils need to know to be healthy and safe in school,
in their personal relationships and in the wider world

The policy can be found on the Policies page

At North Walkden Primary School we follow the You, Me and PSHE
scheme. We use this alongside responding to the needs of our
children as well as any events that may arise. This ensures that
our approach to PSHE is personal and tailored to the needs of our
children.

PSHE is divided into 7 different strands, with age appropriate
topics for each age group. One topic per half term. RSE is taught
in Year 2, 5 and 6 at North Walkden.
