PSHE at Springwell Park Primary 


In EYFS, we begin developing our PSHE skills and knowledge in the 'Personal, Social, and Emotional Development' area of development. This learning is the foundation for our PSHE work when we start KS1. 


At Springwell Park, the Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education curriculum is designed to give our children the knowledge and understanding to become independent, confident, healthy and responsible members of their community and of society. The curriculum enables teachers to support and nurture all aspects of a child’s development, allowing them to develop intellectually, morally, socially and spiritually.

Our curriculum enables all children, regardless of their background, ability and additional needs to flourish and become the very best version of themselves.


Our whole PSHE curriculum is shaped by the needs of children and our community and by our school vision and core values. We teach a clearly sequenced, spiral curriculum which allows children to revisit themes and build their experience and understanding. This is enhanced by carefully chosen opportunities to address issues which are of significance for our families and our community.

Our PSHE curriculum is delivered through bespoke and relevant themes. These are:

  • Healthy Mind

  • Caring Friendships

  • Online Safety

  • Keeping Safe

  • Healthy Relationships

  • Healthy Body

While PSHE is taught through specific themed days across the school from nursery to year 6 throughout the school year, our strong pastoral approach ensures children experience a responsive PSHE curriculum that supports mental health, relationships and physical wellbeing daily. The PSHE curriculum is flexible enough to respond to social or community issues arising within the school and local area.  We prepare our children well for adult life by helping them to understand their feelings about money, financial decisions and careers through our implementation of the Debt Aware workshops and by running the Positive Footprints Raising Aspirations programme.


Children have an understanding of how to stay safe, be healthy and the importance of healthy relationships in life. They develop an appreciation of what it means to be a positive member of their community and the wider society within a diverse and multicultural world. They show good self-awareness and compassion for others.

Children develop aptitudes such as an appreciation of teamwork, an awareness of different ways to communicate and how to apply resilience in navigating challenges. These help to prepare them for their journey into adolescence and early adulthood.
