PSHE and RSE Intent


Personal Social Health Education is a fundamental part of learning for children. Here at Pencoys this is fostered from the very beginning in our Early Years Foundation stage where children are encouraged to develop lifelong social skills and friendships and mutual respect. Our inclusive curriculum provides all children with opportunities to be expressive and understand the importance of moral values. 

Our Personal Social and Health Education is taught through the Discovery Education Health and Relationships programme (including Sex Education - see RSE policy and guidance below).  The programme teaches skills and knowledge in a values-based context allowing pupils to develop their own values and learning behaviour which in turn develops pupils well-being.



Long Term Plan

Discovery Education provides a progressive scheme of work for children from Year 1 to Year 6. The programme consists of six topics:

  • Healthy and happy friendships

  • Similarities and differences

  • Caring and responsibility

  • Family and committed relationships

  • Healthy bodies and healthy minds

  • Coping with change.
