Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education helps to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes our pupils need to manage their lives, now and in the future. It helps children and young people to stay healthy and safe, while preparing them to make the most of life and work.
At St Oswald's we use the question based model to deliver our PSHE curriculum in line with the national curriculum programme of study. The Programme of Study sets out learning opportunites for each key stage, in three core themes: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. Our question based model outlines the units of work we use to plan engaging and thoughtful PSHE Lessons. The Early Years Framework provides the foundation for our PSHE curriculum.
For the Relationships topic, we follow the 'Journey in Love' programme recommended by Liverpool Dioscese.
It is an essential and a vitally important subject within a broad and balanced curriclum and it enables children to learn, develop skills and attributes to manage their lives now and in the future. PSHE offers learning opportunites and experiences which reflect children's increasing independence as well as physical, mental health and social awareness.
