PSHE education gives pupils the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.
Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.
These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. When taught well, PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.
PSHE education is taught in discrete lessons, supported by other learning opportunities across the curriculum, including the use of enhancement days where possible.
At Fairfield we follow Coram Life Education to teach our discrete lessons, which takes a three strand approach addressing children’s knowledge, skills and attitudes, and the programmes are aligned with the National Curriculum (Citizenship, PSHE Education), covering EYFS, key stage 1 and key stage 2.
As from September 2018, Sex and relationship education became statutory in all primary schools. Sex and relationships education is learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, relationships, sex, human sexuality and sexual health. At Fairfield, Some aspects are taught in science, and others are taught as part of personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE). We believe that a comprehensive programme of SRE provides accurate information about the body, reproduction, sex, and sexual health. It also gives children and young people essential skills for building positive, enjoyable, respectful and non-exploitative relationships and staying safe both on and offline.
