PSHCE Programme of Study

2013/2014 Transition Year


It is stated in section 2.5 of the National Curriculum Framework that

‘All schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic

education (PSHE) drawing on good practice. We use local data and school knowledge of pupils needs to prioritise the topics that are most relevant to pupils, and planning is often reactive to those needs.

This programme of study covers Key Stages 1 and 2 and is based upon three core themes within which there will be broad overlap and flexibility:

1. Health and Wellbeing

2. Relationships

3. Living in the Wider World

Attainment targets

There are no attainment target for PSHE education. Valley View will use the existing Department for Education end of Key Stage statements to inform the assessment process. (Appendix 1)

Opportunities for both Assessment for Learning and Assessment of Learning should be built into provision. Assessment should encompass teacher, peer and self-assessment. Progress in PSHE should be recorded and reported.

Overarching Concepts

Identity (personal qualities, attitudes, skills, attributes, self esteem, performance, achievements and what influences these)

Relationships (including different types and different settings)

A Healthy (including physically, emotionally and socially) balanced lifestyle (including within relationships, exercise, rest and diet)

Risk (to be managed rather than simply avoided) and safety(including behaviour startegies in different settings)

Diversity and equality

Rights and responsibilities ( including fairness and justice)

Change (as something to be managed) and resilience (the skills, strategies and ‘inner resources’ we can draw on when faced with challenging change or circumstance)

Power (how it is used and encountered in a variety of contexts including persuasion, bullying, negotiation)

Career (including enterprise, economic understanding and aspirations)

We will ensure PSHE education makes a significant contribution to the development of a wide range of skills including intrapersonal skills, interpersonal skills and enquiry skills.

We aim to follow the PSHE Association suggested Programme of study for the three core themes.
