Pyrcroft Grange Primary School curriculum: PSHE and RSE


At Pyrcroft Grange, the intent of our PSHE and RSE curriculum is to provide our pupils with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves safe, healthy and be prepared for work and life.

Children will develop skills and attributes such as: resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team working and critical thinking through three core themes. These core themes are: health and wellbeing, relationships, and living in the wider world.

Through high quality teaching, we aim to develop responsible members of society who:

  • Understand how they are developing personally and socially
  • Have confidence to tackle moral, social and cultural issues they may face
  • Understand their rights and responsibilities
  • Appreciate what it means to be part of a diverse society
  • Have developed a sense of self worth
  • Play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community
  • Understand how to be safe and how to develop healthy relationships both now and in the future.


Teachers have access to the government recommended PSHE Association curriculum toolkits for Key Stage 1 and Key stage 2. Teachers also have access to the Twinkl Life scheme of work which fully aligns with the PSHE Association. Using curriculum and planning guidance from the PSHE Association and the Twinkl Life scheme of work, teachers will plan for:

  • Engaging and focused PSHE lessons
  • A cycle of lessons which carefully pans for progression building on knowledge and skills that have been previously acquired
  • Incorporation of the PSHE and RSE policies into the PSHE curriculum
  • Identify links to British Values
  • Cross curricular links with other subjects
  • Value of the term
  • Assemblies linked to the value of the term


Our PSHE curriculum is well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. If children are keeping up with the curriculum they are deemed to be making good progress. We measure the impact of our curriculum by:

  • Children remembering more about PSHE
  • Children will recognise and understand the British Values: democracy, tolerance, mutual respect, rule of law, liberty
  • Children will be excited to learn and to be in school
  • Children will have positive and healthy relationships with adults and peers
  • Children will understand the physical aspects of RSE at an age appropriate level
  • Children will have respect for themselves and for others
  • Children will have a healthy body images
