P.S.H.E.

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, and this expectation is outlined in the introduction of the national curriculum. At Leigh we have a detailed PSHE programme of study which also encompasses learning from SEAL (social, emotional aspects of learning), RSE (Relationships and Sex Education), and citizenship. Our PSHE education programme is aimed to equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions. 

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. It is agreed that teachers are best placed to understand the needs of their pupils and do not need additional central prescription. The coverage maps on 'Wider Curriculum' detail our PSHE programme of study in each year group. For more information on our RSE curriculum, please visit the SRE page for our policy document and scheme of work.
