Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)


Our school’s PSHE curriculum is ambitious for all pupils and is coherently planned and sequenced to ensure that pupils build on and gain new knowledge and skills as they progress through primary school. Our curriculum is broad and balanced to ensure that pupils leave primary schools with the knowledge and skills to keep themselves physically healthy, mentally healthy and safe. We also aim to equip our pupils with the knowledge, skills and attitudes they will need to be active, respectful and engaged citizens of modern Britain.

Our Curriculum

Our PSHE curriculum was developed, agreed and is taught in schools across Ealing. It has a wide range of child-centred activities to ensure the learning is enjoyable for pupils. Learning descriptors are outlined at the beginning of each unit of planning to ensure teachers know the expected standard of learning that pupils should attain at the end of each unit of work. Our scheme of work contains both formative and summative assessment opportunities that support teachers to assess PSHE knowledge, and how these are applied within social and emotional skills development. PSHE is taught as a discrete lesson once a week but also forms an integral part of the values and ethos of our school.

Please find the PSHE overviews for each year group here

Enrichment Opportunities

Enrichment opportunities are very valuable within our curriculum as it helps children to make further links to what they have discussed within lessons.

Some examples of enrichment opportunities which take place every year:

  • Reception: Police visit the school and pupils visit Southall Fire Station to learn about people who help us
  • EYFS/Key Stage 1: Annual visits from the Ealing Oral Health Advisor to discuss how to maintain good oral health.
  • Key Stages 1 & 2 – Life Education Van 
  • Our Year 6 classes visit the Houses of Parliament to learn about how our democracy works. 

Keeping Safe: Relationships Education and Growing Up (REGU)

REGU is a key aspect of Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) and of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development in school. It also forms part of our school's safeguarding duty. 

Government guidance came into effect in September 2020 which sets out what schools should cover and the legal duties which schools must comply with when teaching Relationships Education.

REGU lessons are one element of our wider PSHE curriculum. The lessons relating specifically to REGU are taught during the Summer Term. Please click here to see the key questions which the children will consider in PSHE lessons during the Summer Term. 

We recognise that parents and carers might have specific questions about what the children will learn or want support with any questions which their child may ask following the lessons. Therefore we have included below the slides (and the accompanying teacher guidance) which are shared with the children during REGU lessons so that parents can be fully informed about what their children will be learning. Further information and guidance about the vocabulary used in the lessons in KS2 can also be found here
