pupils with a sound understanding of skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.
Sex and relationship education (SRE) is an important part of PSHE and it is taught across the school.
It is important that sex and relationships education be taught and help develop essential skills and
attributes, such as self-esteem.
The national curriculum for PSHE aims to ensure that all pupils:
a) talk and write about their opinions, and explain their views, on issues that affect themselves and
b) recognise their worth as individuals by identifying positive things about themselves and their
achievements, seeing their mistakes, making amends and setting personal goals
c) face new challenges positively by collecting information, looking for help, making responsible
choices, and taking action
d) know about the range of jobs carried out by people they know, and to understand how they can
develop skills to make their own contribution in the future
e) understand what makes a healthy lifestyle, including the benefits of exercise and healthy eating,
what affects mental health, and how to make informed choices
