PSHE at Gretton
Personal development is at the heart of everything we do here at Gretton and is woven throughout our whole curriculum. The overarching term personal development includes PSHE (including RSE), SMSC (including British Values), Preparation for Adulthood and Careers development.
Most PSHE has been statutory in schools since September 2020. It is now a legal requirement as outlined under the ‘Children and Social Work Act 2017’, as published by the Department for Education.
The statutory requirements include:
Relationships Education Key Stage 1-2
Relationships and Sex Education Key Stage 3-4
Health Education Key Stage1-4
Key Stage 5 is optional, but a Programme of Study/framework exists as the final chance to ‘Prepare for Adulthood’ within the official PSHE Association's ‘Programme of Study’. The PSHE Association’s ‘Programme of Study’ comprehensively covers the content required to be delivered from the Statutory Guidance, clearly mapped and identifying the learning opportunities required.
There are three core themes embedded in PSHE from Key Stage 1-5:
Health & Wellbeing
Living in the wider world

Have you checked out Childline and the Internet Watch Foundation's Report Remove tool? We understand that having a sexual image or video of themselves shared online can be a distressing situation for a young person. Any young person under 18 can now use Report Remove, allowing them to report to see if the content can be taken down. To find out more, visit: childline.org.uk/remove
