St Edward’s Values: Thankfulness, Forgiveness, Compassion, Perseverance, Courage, Friendship

‘I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.’ (John 10:10)


PSHE Curriculum at St Edward’s


‘A growing body of research shows that pupils who are emotionally healthy do better at school. PSHE education helps children and young people to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn, such as anxiety and unhealthy relationships.’ The PSHE Association

PSHE Education also helps pupils to develop skills and aptitudes — like teamwork, communication, and resilience — that are crucial to navigating the challenges and opportunities of the modern world.

At St. Edward’s we believe PSHE helps children to understand themselves and how they are feeling/developing/changing. These skills support them in understanding and supporting others; finding their place in society. Consequently they learn to consider their wellbeing and that of other people.  We believe it enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society and helps to tackle many of the social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. It provides them with the tools to understand how their behaviour has an impact on those around them and supports them in creating a positive attitude towards their emotional and mental health.

Overall we believe it helps them to understand how to be a good citizen and how to stay safe.


The National Curriculum states that ‘all schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice. According to the Education Act 2002 and the Academies Act 2010, the PSHE curriculum should be a balanced and broadly based curriculum which ‘promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and prepares pupils at the school for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

We deliver the Curriculum through a Programme called ’3D’in which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes needed in order to keep themselves healthy and safe whilst preparing them for life and work.

The Dimensions Curriculum, reflects the 2020 guidance and covers all aspects of Relationships Education and Health Education in an age appropriate way. There are three underlying core themes taught throughout Dimensions 3D PSHE,

1.Health and Wellbeing


3.Living in the Wider World


Pupils are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of activities, enabling them to make significant contributions to both life in school and within the wider community. Our children begin school life with poor speaking and listening skills and a limited range of vocabulary, therefore they need a wider range of experiences. This allows them to become aware of their skills and talents, develop their self-worth, learn to work as part of a team and take greater responsibility for their own learning. In doing so, they are able to reflect and evaluate on how they are making progress. The 3D PSHE Programme provides pupils with the means to handle many of the social, cultural, spiritual, physical and moral issues that occur throughout life.

Our intention is that, when children leave St. Edward’s they do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active role in today’s society. We want our children to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible if they put their mind to it.
