Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education

(including Relationships & Sex Education)

"The mind is everything. What you think, you become."  (Buddha)




At Flore Church of England Primary School we are committed to the mental, physical and emotional health and wellbeing of our whole school community. We believe that PSHE is crucial to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens.

PSHE is taught through discussions, circle time, investigations and problem-solving activities. It is taught as a discreet lesson but is also embedded across our whole curriculum.

Our whole school Christian values also provide PSHE learning opportunities.

As part of PSHE we also deliver RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) and Drug Education to all children. All this work is age-appropriate and centred on relationships and empowering children to make positive choices.

As children reach Upper KS2 they will begin to learn about the changes they will face both physically and emotionally as they head towards puberty. Furthermore children will learn about the reproductive process of conception relevant to their age of development. Parents will be informed when RSE is to be delivered and will be given an outline of the content for each year group. This is usually taught in the summer term.
