Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) and Citizenship education gives pupils the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to manage their lives in modern Britain, now and in the future.


School Curriculum for Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) Education

Our teaching of PSHE and Citizenship and the expectations we have of children are underpinned by the:

  • non-statutory guidance produced by the PSHE Association;
  • 2019 guidance from Department for Education;
  • work of the Manchester Healthy Schools Team;
  • the school’s Sex and Relationships Policy;
  • Pride 123 Drugs Education Programme;
  • Growing and Changing programme.

Our PSHE and Citizenship curriculum has been revised in 2019 in line with the latest statutory guidance from the Department for Education.
