PSHE and RSE
Personal Social Health and Economic Education (PSHE) plays an important and necessary role in equipping our pupils with a sound understanding of risk, and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions. We want our children to grow up happy, healthy, and safe, ready to thrive in the next stage of their education and beyond.
At St Elizabeth’s part of the PSHE curriculum is taught through discrete lessons while many topics are integrated into other curriculum areas. We also respond to changing circumstances, children’s needs or current affairs with incidental PSHE sessions throughout the year.
Relationships, Sex and Health Education is a key part of PSHE provision. We use the Ten:Ten Life to the Full programme for our RSHE curriculum and we adapt this to meet the needs of our pupils. Life to the Full comprehensively meets the Department for Education’s statutory guidance.
In addition to our RSHE curriculum, we have a planned programme of PSHE provision which builds on previous learning each year. This includes:
- Visits by the dentist
- Scooter Training
- Young Enterprise
- Governors' Award
- Bikeability Training
- Junior Citizen Event
- Online Safety workshops
- Drugs and alcohol workshops
