Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) at Stanley St. Peters


At Stanley St Peter’s our main aim is to ‘Unlock Potential and Celebrate Success’ and we believe that PSHE underlines children’s ability to access all areas of school life including learning, building friendships, resolving conflicts and perseverance. PSHE enables children to create and achieve their own ambitions. We want all children – regardless of their background, ability or circumstances - to leave our school with a pleasure and enjoyment for education alongside lifelong skills that can help them be successful in further education and their chosen careers. 


What does PSHE look like in our school?

Teachers use their understanding of the needs of their pupils to direct children to build on their pre-existing skills surrounding personal, social, health and economic education. This will enable a confident approach to curriculum objectives.

PSHE must allow flexibility in order to tailor the curriculum to children’s needs. Children must be equipped with a sound understanding of risk and knowledge of skills to make safe decisions.

  • Teachers to address the topics most relevant for their pupils, drawing on good practice and advice from professional organisations.
  • Children have access to age appropriate reading material and video links.
  • School to provide visits from outside agencies for all age groups.
  • PSHE to be completed at least once a week in line with class teacher timetable.
  • PSHE to be used as an approach to conflict resolution where possible and to support school behaviour policy.
  • Written work from weekly lessons to be recorded in the back of RE books.
  • School to participate in charitable events and fundraisers.
  • In addition to resources supplied by the PSHE leadership team, teachers to use SEALS and cornerstones to support planning for lessons and assemblies.


Organisation and Provision

PSHE is delivered within a whole school approach which includes:

  • A weekly PSHE lesson; length of lesson to be flexible and based on class needs.
  • Circle time to be used in response to social and emotional needs of the class, ensure this is supportive of the school behaviour policy.
  • Specialised collective worships
  • PSHE activities and whole school events e.g. children in need, anti-bullying, internet safety.
  • Visiting speakers e.g. school nurse
  • Pastoral care and guidance to be delivered as a class and to small groups who require this.



Teachers use the 'You, Me, PSHE' scheme of work to deliver high quality PSHE lessons and ensure statutory coverage of the following important elements: drug education, financial education, sex and relationship education and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.  Please see the Whole School Curriculum Overview at the bottom of this page.




In addition to the PSHE taught through the curriculum, we also have whole school events that help to develop the children and give them the opportunity to express and explore PSHE in different ways.  Some of the wonderful work and special days that the children have taken part in so far this year include:


  • The Harvest Festival;
  • Remembrance Day;
  • Singing at church for the local community;
  • Young Voices Concert at Sheffield Arena;
  • Anti-bullying Week;
  • Internet Safety Day;
  • Child Mental Health Week;
  • Educational visits linked to topics;
  • Dog's Trust Workshop;
  • British Hen Welfare Trust Workshop;
  • Canal River Trust, Water Safety Workshop;
  • Fire Safety Talk from REAL fire fighters;
  • Children in Need;
  • Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day;
  • World Book Day;
  • British Red Cross First Aid Workshop;


We have many more opportunities planned for the future too!


We are immensely proud of our children and how they embrace the PSHE curriculum in their everyday lives.  It is something that we will continue to work hard on, to ensure that our children are the best version of themselves that they can be!
