Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)


At Sythwood we understand that children grow up in a complex and ever-changing world and are exposed to an increasing range of influences. Explicit teaching of PSHE enables our children to be happy, safe, healthy, confident and responsible members of society who have a strong sense of self-worth and resilience.


The KS1/2 PSHE curriculum is taught explicitly through weekly lessons where we cover:

  • Relationships and sex education (including relationships and safety online)
  • Drugs
  • Financial capability
  • Behaviour and safety- keeping safe and well
  • Physical health
  • Mental Health

In addition, PSHE is reinforced through:

  • Assemblies
  • Language for behaviour
  • Be Ready, Be Safe, Be respectful and Be your best
  • Adults being role models and having high expectations of the children
  • Structured interventions
  • A wide range of first hand experiences and enrichment opportunities.


National test performance and internal assessment-children feel safe and secure enough to fulfil their academic potential

Number of exclusions- children are able to identify and manage risk, make informed choices and understand what influences their decisions.

Pupil Voice- children are aware of what positive relationships are and how to form them.

At Sythwood we use the Jigsaw PSHE/Health and Wellbeing programme. The document attached is the whole school overview for our PSHE curriculum.
