We use the PSHE Association’s ‘Thematic Approach’ which sets out learning in 3 core themes: ‘Health and Wellbeing’, ‘Relationships’ and ‘Living in the Wider World’. This covers all of the statutory requirements for KS1 Relationships and Health Education as well as a comprehensive PSHE education programme. Each term we focus on a different theme,  allowing both Year 1 and Year 2 to work on similar themes at the same time, building a spiral programme year on year, whilst offering flexibility to add additional topics or themes should a cohort or class require it. The planning takes into account the children’s stage of development and needs and also reflects the context of the school and local community.


Children learn to understand and respect our common humanity, diversity and differences and develop a fuller understanding of British Values. In doing so, they develop a knowledge of their rights and duties as individuals and members of society. Throughout their schooling, pupils develop socially, morally, spiritually and culturally and there is a continued emphasis on wellbeing ensuring our children are mentally prepared for their future.
