Our PSHE Learning Journey
Our Vision for Personal, Social and Health Education
PSHE is a subject through which our children develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy, safe and prepared for life and work. We inspire our children with experiences across their learning journey to develop the qualities and attributes that they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society and the global community. Promoting the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils is an important part of PSHE. British values are promoted through school life and the teaching of the PSHE modules. Relationship Education is also taught sensitively through this program with age-appropriate themes. Our children develop confidence, resilience, independence and strength of character through participation in PSHE so that they are able to discover more about themselves and their contribution to a world within and beyond Pembridge.

We have used advice from the PSHE Association to create a two-year curriculum which is flexible to accommodate the needs of the children and any themes current at the time. We focus on questions related to Health and Wellbeing, Living in the Wider World and Relationships. You can find those here.
Knowing the breadth and depth of vocabulary used in our PSHE lessons can help parents and carers support their children in their learning at home. All of what we discuss in PSHE is just as beneficial being talked about within the family environment. You can find our vocabulary progression here. Please ask us in school if you have any questions relating to how to approach some of the issues we raise.
In Early Years (the Reception year), the curriculum is organised along broad themes. You can see what PSHE looks like in Class 1 here.
We use itineraries to help us focus on what we need to teach in KS1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2. These also contain key words, curriculum links and opportunities for enrichment activities. We use these to help us see what our children are able to understand, know and do by the end of each two-year focus. You can find these here:
