Personal, Social and Health Education and Sex and Relationship Education


Purpose of Study

During key stages 1 and 2, PSHE education offers both explicit and implicit learning opportunities and experiences which reflect pupils’ increasing independence and physical and social awareness, as they move through the primary phase. It builds on the skills that pupils started to acquire during the Early Years Foundation stage (EYFS) to develop effective relationships, assume greater personal responsibility and manage personal safety, including online. PSHE education helps pupils to manage the physical and emotional changes at puberty, introduces them to a wider world and enables them to make an active contribution to their communities.


Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education and Sex and relationship education (SRE) are an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. We intend to develop children’s ability to self-reflect and understand others through an engaging curriculum, delivered by their class teacher, which enables them to feel confident and comfortable in discussing.


We follow the Islington Scheme of work, which develops and builds on children’s previous knowledge and gives them a breadth of knowledge and information to support their thoughts and feelings about themselves and others as the grow and develop.


At Whitechapel Primary School, we aim for children to be equipped with a good foundation and sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions as they progress through life.
