Personal, Social, Health and Economics Education (PSHE) and Relationships
and Health Education


Through our PSHE curriculum, we aim to give pupils the knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships to embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful life. We encourage pupils to develop the skills to put this knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when facing risks, challenges and complex contexts. We believe that effective PSHE education can encourage young people to develop resilience, to know how and when to ask for help, and to know where to access support. 

Through high quality, evidence-based and age-appropriate teaching of PSHE pupils can become more prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. It also enables the Carr Head family to promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, at school and in society according to legislation.

We aim to ensure that PSHE is inclusive and meets the needs of all our pupils, including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We aim to ensure that PSHE fosters gender quality and LGBT+ equality.  

The scheme we use is based the PSHE Association’s Primary Programme Builder Question-Based Model .
