PSHE Intent

At Holy Trinity Primary Academy, we aim to build a PSHE curriculum which develops learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills this enables children to access the wider curriculum and to prepare children to be a global citizen now and in their future roles within a global community. To design a curriculum with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding to fulfil the new PSHE three strands health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. Relationship and Sex Education will be taught in line with the PSHE association and CWP resource following the statutory government guidance. Children will have accurate and relevant knowledge of PSHE from this. Children will be given the opportunities to explore and challenge a range of values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities. Children will develop a range of skills and strategies to live a healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced life. PSHE is taught in year groups following a one-year rolling programme which is age-related. We also have drop down days  or specialist weeks were we focus on current issues inline with dates and school and community needs such as: Anti Bullying Week, Children’s Mental Health and Well-being Week, Black Hisory Month and Internet Safety etc

The policy:

·       offers a whole school statement of intent through its aims for PSHE,

·       It sets out an agreed approach to PSHE in the curriculum, guiding practice, offering a clear framework for teaching and a ‘toolkit’ for future decision-making

·        It clarifies the school’s intended outcomes for its PSHE provision

·        It informs and reflects practice by outlining the content covered and methodology used to enable learning in PSHE

PSHE Policy



The school curriculum will focus on three core learning themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. The Scheme of work also includes opportunities to link British Values, Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) and schools key skills into the curriculum. Children have access to key knowledge, language and meanings in order to understand PSHE and to use across the wider curriculum Each child from Year 1 will have a working class journal where they will be introduced to age appropriate terminology and vocabulary used throughout the teaching of PSHE. EYFS work in a floor book as a class where the children are able to contribute though images, pupil voice and in-class / outdoor learning.  British Values and SMSC also enable the pupils to make links across the wider curriculum. Whole school, Key Stage and class assemblies always make a link to PSHE, British Values and SMSC. We also have a range of visitors into school to share their own expertise  e.g The Dogs Trust, NHS Nurse, Dentist, Bikeability, Veiola, Air Ambulance etc.

The policy meets the needs of pupils, school and community,  under the Education Act 2002/Academies Act 2010 providing a balanced and broadly-based curriculum which:

• promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society,

• prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.



Children will demonstrate and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual respect, Rule of law and Liberty with the school day.  Children will demonstrate a healthy outlook towards school – attendance will be in-line with national and behaviour will be good. Children will achieve age related expectations across the wider curriculum. PSHE education within pupils’ real life experiences, and is essential to establish a safe learning environment. Clear ‘ground rules’.


Pupils with special educational needs follow the same PSHE education programme as all other students with careful consideration given concerning the level of differentiation needed, and in some cases the content or delivery will be adapted. Teachers and/or learning support assistants will work with individual pupils where required, and if appropriate.

Active engagement in learning is most effective in teaching PSHE education and all pupils need opportunities to consider and clarify their values and beliefs and to rehearse and develop enquiry and interpersonal skills.
