Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. All school should teach PSHE, drawing on good practice, and this expectation is outlined in the national curriculum (DfE). PSHE education helps pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. From making responsible decisions about alcohol to succeeding in their first job, PSHE education helps pupils to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up (PSHE Association).
The curriculum for PSHE is changing from September this year. The main changes include the addition of compulsory Relationships Education and Health Education. We would like to invite your input during a consultation period ending on 1st October 2020. If you would like any further information on how this looks here at Ridgeway please take a look at the new 'PSHE Curriculum' part of our website where you will find everything you need.
If you have any questions or concerns please get in touch with your child's class teacher or Mrs Harrison (PSHE coordinator).
