St Paul's C of E Primary

Personal, Social & Health Education

The process of personal and social development focuses on personal growth. At St Paul's we provide opportunities for children to develop their self-concept, self-confidence and self esteem. Our aim is to help young people understand and value themselves as individuals and as responsible and caring members of society. This is taught through weekly lessons, circle times and is intrinsic to our school ethos and daily life.

Health Education is taught through topics. Visitors from the wider community, such as: Ambulance staff, First Aiders, dentists, nurses, nutritionists etc. assist us in the delivery of the curriculum.

 We follow a skills and knowledge-based programme of study, which is based on materials created by Brighton and Hove City Council PSHE specialists. Our PSHE curriculum also includes Relationships and Sex Education appropriate to the age of the child. We are proud to be meeting the DFE guidance for Relationships, Health and Sex education (2019) and contributing to the Equalities Act duties on schools, through our PSHE Curriculum.

Our priority at St Paul's, through the PSHE curriculum is to ensure all children and staff have the right to be respected and valued as individuals in a community setting.
