PHSE Information Document

PSHE Long Term Overview

Personal, Social and Health Education helps pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. The PSHE curriculum incorporates Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE).


St Ann’s Well Academy’s key intentions that drive our PSHE curriculum are:

  • To develop the skills, knowledge and understanding of pupils in order for them to:
  • respect all relationships and themselves within them;
  • respect and participate safely in the world around them;
  • develop an understanding of their own bodies physically and mentally, knowing how to keep them safe and healthy.
  • To promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils and the Fundamental British Values to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences in future roles within the global community.


Foundation Stage

Personal, Social and Emotional Development is consistently prioritised as a Prime Area of learning. Children will:

  • Learn how to form and maintain positive attachments with adults and their peers
  • Gain knowledge of how to support their own health and wellbeing
  • Form an understanding of their own feelings and those of others
  • Develop the skills to begin to regulate their own behaviours to meet the rules and expectations set within school and society

Key Stage 1 and 2

PSHE is delivered through a clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with Department of Education: Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education and the National Curriculum.  Pupils are taught knowledge and skills through three core learning areas, each of which incorporates three sub themes:

  • Health and wellbeing (growing and changing, physical health and mental wellbeing, keeping safe)
  • Living in the wider world (belonging to a community, media literacy and digital resilience, money and work)
  • Relationships (family and friendships, safe relationships, respecting ourselves and others)

The teaching of PSHE also occurs incidentally through our core school values and social, moral, spiritual and cultural development throughout varying parts of the curriculum.


St Ann’s Well Academy children will:

  • Demonstrate a healthy outlook towards school and behaviour will be good.
  • Have respect for themselves and others
  • Demonstrate respect for the world around them
  • Demonstrate an understanding of their own bodies physically and mentally and can verbalise how to keep them safe and healthy
  • Recognise and apply the Fundamental British Values of Democracy, Mutual Respect and Tolerance, Individual Liberty and Rule of Law
  • Demonstrate high aspirations for their future self and the world around them
  • Demonstrate sound spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
