Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education

  • What is PSHE Education?
    PSHE education is a planned, developmental programme of learning designed to help learners develop the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future in modern Britain.

    It deals with real life issues which affect children and young people, their families and their communities, and engages with the social and economic realities of their lives, experiences and attitudes.

    Wilson’s School is committed to excellence in PSHE education and have signed up to the PSHE Association school charter for PSHE education. To find out more, please follow the link to the PSHE Association web page.

    The following describes the types and range of performance that the majority of pupils should characteristically demonstrate by the end of the Key Stage, having been taught the relevant programme of study. The descriptions are designed to help teachers judge the extent to which their pupils’ attainment relates to this expectation.

    End of Key Stage Statement for PSHE

    Pupils can assess their personal qualities, skills and achievements and use them to set future goals in preparation for life in modern Britain. They accept and engage with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

    They can present themselves confidently and use praise and criticism effectively. They can identify the range of post-16 options available to them and can use careers advice and support networks to plan and negotiate their career pathways, setting realistic targets. They can use some of the financial tools and services available to them for managing their personal finances (for example using bank machines, identifying different types of bank and savings accounts).

    Pupils can recognise the short- and long-term consequences of personal health choices and make decisions based on this knowledge. They know some of the causes, symptoms and treatments of mental and emotional health disorders such as stress and depression, including the link between eating disorders and self-image, and can identify strategies for preventing and addressing these. They can assess the risks and benefits associated with lifestyle choices such as sexual activity, and make safer choices based on this assessment. They know where to find professional health advice and are confident in seeking it (for example from their GP or other support services). Pupils know about the dangers of radicalisation and extremism. (QCA 2005)
