Personal Social Health Education

PSHE is taught in blocks of 3 weeks each half term.  we have a statutory duty to include appropriate elements of Relationship and Sex Education.  At this age, we focus on healthy relationships within the context of friendships and family life.  During the last term of Year 4 girls and boys are taught in separate groups as we start talking about early puberty changes to our body.  Parents/carers will be informed before these lessons begin.  The curriculum also includes safety at home and within the community.


Many aspects of PSHE link with other  curriculum areas such as Science, Computing and Humanities topics.


PSHE learning is not recorded in individual pupil exercise books but rather in a shared class memory book often made up of comments or thoughts from the lessons recorded by the class adults or individual  pictures or thoughts collected from the children.
