PSHE, Citizenship and RSE

Curriculum Leader - Miss Becca Brown


At St. Mary's C of E Primary Academy we want all our children in PSHE to:

  • Learn as much as possible so they will become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society who understand how they are developing personally and socially, and give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
  • Ignite curiosity in themselves to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.  
  • Carry out good deeds within our school and wider community in order to appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society


To school follows the 'You ME PSHE scheme of work'. Children have 1 PSHE lesson a week.

What Makes a Good Lesson 


We know that many children have positive and negative experiences and challenges that will influence their future life and happiness. Through PSHE we hope our children will leave our school will :

  • Be able to approach a range of real life situations and apply their skills and attributes to help navigate themselves through modern life
  • Be on their way to becoming healthy, open minded, respectful, socially and morally responsible, active members of society
  • Appreciate difference and diversity
  • Recognise and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual respect, Rule of law and Liberty
  • Be  able to understand and manage their emotions
  • Be able to look after their mental health and well-being
  • Be able to develop positive, healthy relationship with their peers both now and in the future.
  •  Understand the physical aspects involved in RSE at an age appropriate level
  •  Have respect for themselves and others.
  •  Have a positive self-esteem
