Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) at Highgate Primary

PSHE and RSE education are school curriculum subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy, safe and prepared for life and work. When delivered well, PSHE and RSE education has an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.

At Highgate Primary School we support children to acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. As part of a whole-school approach, PSHE education develops the qualities and attributes children need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.

Our PSHE curriculum has been designed to prepare children to manage the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up in such rapidly changing and challenging times. It also helps children to connect and apply the knowledge and understanding they learn in all subjects to practical, real-life situations while helping them to feel safe and secure enough to fulfill their academic potential.

Our PSHE education is part of a whole school approach which promotes effective relationships between all members of the school community.

The promotion of pupils’ personal and social development underpins other learning. PSHE education contributes to personal development by helping children and young people to build their personal identities, confidence and self-esteem and understand what influences their decisions. Developing self-understanding, empathy and the ability to work with others helps our pupils to enjoy healthy and productive relationships in all aspects of their lives.
