Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) enables pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes that they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Evidence shows that well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
PSHE education is a statutory requirement from September 2020. Relationships Education for Primary age pupils, and Relationships and Sex Education and Online Safety for secondary age pupils, are a mandatory part of the school curriculum.
As a result, here at Cornwall Healthy Schools we have worked to ensure we can support you in the best way we can with this ever-evolving and increasing area. We have commissioned a new PSHE Curriculum, which is available free to all schools in the county.
We are still in uncharted waters as we enter the new academic year. Schools have found themselves thrown into the midst of the pandemic from the start and, as ever, have risen to the challenge. This will inevitably be an incredibly busy time, with the return of more pupils into buildings and navigating the establishment of a “new normal”.
