Growing Life Long Learning

Get in Touch


Our PHSE Scheme of Work aims to equip children with essential skills for life; it intends to develop the whole child through carefully planned and resourced lessons that develop the knowledge, skills and attributes children need to protect and enhance their wellbeing. Through these lessons, children learn how to stay safe and healthy, build and maintain successful relationships and become active citizens, responsibly participating in society around them.


Our PHSE Scheme of Work is split into thematic units:

Health and Wellbeing

Living in the Wider World


TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More)

RSE (Relationships and Sex Education)

From September 2020, Relationships Education teaching is a mandatory requirement for all primary schools. The purpose of Relationships Education is to equip children with the understanding, knowledge and skills they will need in their everyday lives. These are important life skills about communicating and interacting with others. Teaching about relationships enables children to safely negotiate making new friendships, recognise potential threats to their wellbeing and develop meaningful relationships with others throughout their lives.


Key Stage 1 – Children are taught about:

Special/Important people in their lives

Similarities and differences

Different families

Friendship and fairness

Cooperation and teamwork skills

Feelings and emotions

Communicating effectively with others

Consent and bullying behaviours


Key Stage 2 – Children extend their learning on the themes covered in Key Stage 1 and build on their knowledge about:

Different types of families and loving relationships

Who their support network consists of

Healthy and unhealthy relationships

Dares, risks and peer pressure

Personal boundaries and secrets

Techniques for resolving disputes

Collaboration, compromise and sharing responsibilities

Consequences of our actions

Here you will find Medium Term plans for each year group of topics to be covered over the year. 

As from September 2020, 'Relationships Education' is statutory for all primary children, in all primary schools, this means that parents and carers cannot withdraw their child from these lessons. However, they will be able to request that their child is withdrawn from lessons about 'Sex Education' taught as part of  'Relationships Education' which are not statutory objectives covered in the Science National Curriculum. 

This will only apply to years 2, 4 and 6 as these are the only year groups learning about 'Relationships Education'. In their medium term plans, the option to withdraw from a lesson, is highlighted in yellow. Parents will recieve a letter from their class teacher outlining content of these lessons for your information. If you do wish to withdraw your child, please inform the class teacher or Mr Skelcher. Other work will be provided for these children, outside of the classroom. 


In Early Years, PSED (Personal, Social and Emotional Development) is a prime area of learning, therefore an integral aspect of daily planning, teaching and learning.  It is split into 3 sections:

Making relationships

Self-confidence and self-awareness 

Managing feelings and behaviour


Planning is child led to reflect the interests of the children and the needs of the school. Children take part in circle time and discuss topics and themes that are at their level. We also have ‘Talk Time’ to allow the children to build their confidence to talk in front of others, to encourage a ‘Class Team’ ethos and to discuss behaviour matters that may have arisen in class, allowing the children to reflect upon and find ways to solve these issues.

British Values

As a school, we promote British Values ensuring that our children leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. We support the values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.  Through aspects of school life such as voting for school council members, assemblies and discrete PSHE lessons, these values are embedded within our curriculum. We plan assemblies and lessons to teach the children about our values, respecting similarities and differences, tackling stereotypes and understanding why some people discriminate. We aim to empower children to have a voice and to stand up against discrimination, valuing equality, tolerance and mutual respect.

Please see below for the Whole School long term overview. This shows the themed areas that each class will be looking at and when. They run in whats called a 'spiral curriculum'. This means that the same theme will be looked at every 2 years, but different aspects will be covered within this them and prior knowledge will be built upon.
