Personal, social and health (PSHE) education promotes pupils’ personal social and emotional development, as well as their health and well being. It helps to give children the knowledge and skills they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. It also gives children an understanding of the rights and responsibilities that are part of being a good citizen.

As part of the new curriculum we have developed age appropriate objectives to ensure that the children are receiving a broad and balanced curriculum that equips them to deal with life’s daily challenges. Alongside the curriculum we have trainee playground buddies who will be helping the staff to ensure break times are a happy time for all the children.


We are also part of the restorative practice program in Liverpool and as part of this we are developing the use of 'circles' and various other aspects of the program over this academic year.

As part of your child's PSHE Education they will be studying the following core themes:

  • Health and Well Being
  • Relationships
  • Living in the Wider World


Within the theme of Relationships, there will be age appropriate S.R.E (Sex and Relationships Education)

sessions. Please see Overview for more information.


PSHE Education is invaluable to Pinehurst’s approach to Safeguarding, which is why we feel these sessions are so important for our children.



However, the statutory Department for Education guidance for SRE (2000) states: “In any school that provides SRE, parents have the right to withdraw their children from all or part of SRE (excluding withdrawal from learning about reproduction and human development within national curriculum science).”
