Personal Social Health & Economic Education (PSHE)

Our Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education and it encompasses many areas of study. It equips pupils with the skills and knowledge necessary to deal with the real life issues that they may face as they grow up and reach adulthood, for example,

  • Nutrition and healthy lifestyles

  • Emotional health and wellbeing

  • The importance of physical activity

  • Drug, alcohol and tobacco education

  • Community responsibilities and citizenship

  • Safety and risk education

  • Health and relationship education (HRE)

  • Financial education

A great deal of this work is carried out through the cornerstones of our learning, the 6Rs. These are embedded throughout our curriculum. Click on the link  below to find out more.

The 6Rs

This content is also delivered through our ongoing cross curricular topics and through ongoing themes and events. For example,

Nutrition & Healthy Lifestyles – we are a qualified ‘Healthy School’ and focus on the links between health, behaviour and attainment. We have a ‘Whole School’ approach to promoting health and wellbeing.

We are working towards our ‘Food for Life’ Silver Award,

All children are engaged in growing and cooking throughout the year.

Our school kitchen has been awarded the silver catering award.

We have much community engagement in our healthy lifestyles work, for example Parents’ and children ‘Cookery Club’ and our recent ‘Brocks Hill Curry-Off’ which was featured on BBC Radio Leicester.

Financial Education – We hold ‘Business days’ when each class undertakes enterprise projects. They create products by working from a budget and managing their money to try to generate a profit.

Also, a great deal of work is done through our work with the DfE scheme 'The Social & Emotional Aspects of Learning' (S.E.A.L.)

This has broad overarching themes which teachers draw on to deliver key parts of the PSHE programme. For example,

  • Getting on and falling out
  • Anti- bullying
  • New Beginnings
  • Going for Goals
  • Good to be me
  • Relationship
  • Changes
