PSHE & RSE
PSHE & RSE
PSHE education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Evidence shows that well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
Our PSHE lessons aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team working and critical thinking in the context of learning grouped into three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education).
The national curriculum also states that ‘all schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice’. The Relationships and Health aspects of PSHE education is now compulsory in all schools.

At Britannia, we use the PSHE Association, SCARF resources and 1Decision to deliver a range of fun, informative and engaging PSHE lessons for our children. The lessons have been carefully planned and mapped out as a staff and we deliver the curriculum that is statutory but also approrpriate for our children. Our PSHE lessons are taught weekly but the key knowledge and skills are also interwoven into daily life at Britannia.
