‘Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.’ PSHE Association, 2019
‘We may have different religions, different languages, different coloured skin, but we all belong to one human race. We all share the same basic values.’ Kofi Annan
‘We ourselves feel that what we are doing is a drop in the ocean. But the ocean will be less because of that missing drop.’
Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta
PSD is divided into two main categories:
1. Health well-being and relationship, sex education
2. Living in a wider world.
These categories are from the PSHE Association Programme of Study to the New Statutory guidance on Health Education and Relationships – Updated July 2019 and the suggested Programme of Study for Core 1 and Core 2 PSHE Education Programme of Study October 2014. (Please see framework for further details on the breakdown of the topics.)
Educating pupils on the importance of positive self-esteem, self-worth and self-respect will aid pupils in their self-care routine as well as mirroring these attributes towards others. This will prepare pupils with the strategies and skills required in everyday life and beyond Holy Trinity.
