PSHE Vision Statement


 Curriculum Design

At St. Peter’s Primary School we have designed a sequential PSHE curriculum based on the development of knowledge and skills centred around living happy, healthy and fulfilled lives. A curriculum, which will help children understand how they are developing personally and socially. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community. This includes for example supporting others through play, supporting the elderly and church within our community.    Our curriculum is designed to provide our children with a foundation of real-life skills building resilience, confidence and a strong sense of citizenship. This will enable our children to access the wider curriculum and to prepare the children to be a global citizen now and in their later lives within a diverse community.  We strive to ensure children understand British Values and how those values are modelled throughout our lives. All members of our school community model the behaviours and values that enrich and support those taught through our creative and pupil driven curriculum.  Our PSHE is designed to: recognise children’s prior knowledge and understanding, through the use of baseline and summative assessments. This will ensure lessons are sequenced and build upon what has previously been learnt. We provide first hand learning experiences, giving our children the opportunities to lead in teams, make decisions based upon real life experiences. Developing their interpersonal and independence skills in order to problem solve and make sensible choices.  We aim to build a curriculum that incorporates Relationships and Development, which will enable all children to explore the complexity of the relationships they have now and know how to be safe, preparing them to understand and develop healthy relationships in their future lives.


The extensive PSHE Curriculum has been designed to suit children of all abilities and support is given where possible. The curriculum has been broken down into a key question for each half term. This is closely linked to resources from a number of PSHE Association accredited resources. The Scheme of work also includes links to PSHE, British Values (BV), Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) and the language is used consistently by all staff. Whole school, Key Stage and class assemblies make a link to PSHE, British Values and SMSC. There is a clear and comprehensive Relationship and Development scheme of work within PSHE in line with the recommendations within the National Curriculum. The teaching and learning of Relationships and Development is planned explicitly within each year group, using PSHE Association accredited resources along with Ten Ten Church of England interactive resources as a guide. Parents have been consulted about our curriculum and its content.


We firmly believe that a meaningful PSHE curriculum is the key to children becoming confident, resilient, independent and well-rounded adults. Children can approach a range of real-life situations and apply their skills and attributes to help navigate them through modern life. From exposure to a range of global issues and problems, children build up confidence and independence to overcome and become a responsible global citizen. Children understand the different lifestyles that people may live and show respect and acceptance. Children understand about democracy, tolerance and the rights that they have has children. Children understand how to stay safe online, children understand about living a healthy lifestyle including diet and exercise. They know who to turn to for support and guidance. Children develop positive and healthy relationships with their peers and adults.

Reception-The Colour Monster

After reading the story The Colour Monster Flossie chose to make puppets to show and talk about different feelings.

Year 3

We have been creating anxiety boxes and looking at the different ways we can put our anxieties away and get rid of them.

We have been looking at online safety and what our online identity tells people.

In PSHE we have been investigating how Spikey the Spider abuses his friends online. The children each chose different areas of Spikey’s online activity to further investigate.

Y4 Choosing a growth mindset

Year 4 had to choose which statement represented a growth or a fixed mindset. We worked from these statements to discuss which affirmations we could use on our class affirmation wall to support the development of our own growth mindsets. 

Year 2

In year 2 we have been using the outdoors to connect with nature and to create faces based on our feelings during lockdown. We learnt about lots of new vocabualry to express our feelings as well and we were able to write captions explaining the faces we created.

Our faces created in the outdoors.


Year 2

During PSHE we have been learning about how to stay safe. We have linked this to our Seas, beaches and Oceans topic. Yesterday we took part in a virtual RNLI lesson. We learned about the dangers of sea rescues and how to keep safe on the beach and in the water. We all completed a water safety passport. We now know where is safe on the beach and in the water.

Year 3 have been working independently to ‘fill someone else’s bucket’ with happiness. 

Leading Teams

Year 4 - As part of our weekly Picture News assemblies we thought about how lucky we are to be able to come to school daily unlike other children around the world. We found out about Malala Yousafzai and her thoughts on education. We had the task to write song lyrics in groups to show how lucky we are and how happy we are about school.

Real Life

Year 3 have been looking at what effect germs have on the body and how to ensure our hands are being washed properly.
