The intent of our PSHE curriculum at Park End Primary School, is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and ensures that each of our pupils will know more, remember more and understand more about how to play a positive and successful role within our society, both as a child and as an adult.

We ensure our PSHE curriculum provide an age appropriate understanding of relationships and sex education (RSE) and health education, as set in the new statutory guidance. This enables all children to be safe and to understand and develop healthy relationships both now and in their future lives.

Through our PSHE curriculum at Park End Primary School, we recognise our duty to ‘actively promote’ and provide opportunity for children to understand the fundamental British Values first set out by the Government in the ‘Prevent’ strategy in 2014. We know the important role the PSHE curriculum has in supporting school to implement the 9 protected characteristics of The Equality Act 2010.

At Park End Primary, our vision is for our pupils to make informed, healthy and moral choices and have the self-belief needed for a successful future.

Therefore, our intent statement sets out to:

  • Become, independent, confident, healthy and responsible members of the community and the wider society, as well as developing the “whole child” intellectually, morally, socially and spiritually.
  • Understand how they are developing personally and socially, and to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
  • Learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society.
  • Develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
  • Make informed decisions about their well-being, health and relationships and to build their self-efficacy
  • Show an understanding for those with different faiths and beliefs in order for them to become fair, tolerant and confident adults in a forever challenging world.

At Park End Primary, we believe that PSHE plays a vital part of primary education and is integrated throughout our curriculum. We build on statutory content already outlined in the national curriculum and in statutory guidance and follow the ‘Jigsaw’ scheme of work to provide consistency and progression throughout our school.

Our whole school approach to teaching PSHE involves the following:

  • Using the Jigsaw scheme of work to teach core themes
  • Threading relationships and sex education (RSE) and health education through these core themes and other subject areas
  • Linking British Values, SMSC and key skills into other curriculum subjects
  • Teaching PSHE in response to any issue
  • Linking whole school assemblies to PSHE and the school’s core values: hard work, caring, honesty, positivity, responsibility and respect
  • Use of visitors such as emergency services and the school nurse to complement our PSHE curriculum to offer additional learning
  • Use of floor books to record responses to PSHE sessions and progress made
  • PSHE to be highlighted in other areas of planning
  • Use of stories to convey key messages


We firmly believe that a meaningful PSHE curriculum is the key to children becoming confident, tolerant and well-rounded adults. We feel that the PSHE curriculum will develop the following:

  • Children can approach a range of real life situations and apply their skills and attributes to help navigate themselves through modern life.
  • From exposure to a range of global issues and problems, children can build up tolerance and a sense of responsibility of being a global citizen.
  • From engagement with a variety of Educate and Celebrate texts, children can understand the different lifestyles that people may live and be respectful and tolerant towards those leading different lives to themselves.
  • Pupils will be able to discuss and make informed decisions about their well-being, health and relationships and to build their self-efficacy
