PSHCE at Castleside Primary School
We use the PSHE Association scheme of work to support our curriculum overview. All children have a weekly PSHE/RSHE lesson. We follow 3 key themes over the school year;
- Health and Wellbeing
- Living in the Wider World
Our PSHCE curriculum is underpinned by our Rights Respecting ethos. We are currently a Bronze Rights Respecting School.

PSHE in EYFS
Through Personal, Social, Emotional Development children are supported to build constructive and respectful relationships that allow them to play, learn and develop alongside both adults and their peers. As children make friendships they learn to manage conflicts and rivalries with the support of adults. Children are empowered to envisage themselves as valuable individuals who are aware of what makes them unique In the Early Years children are encouraged to express their feelings and adults carefully model the handling of these feelings and emotions to support children in becoming independent in moderating their own feelings. Children are taught to manage their own physical needs and understand the importance of respecting others privacy. A large part of the curriculum in the Early Years supports the developing resilience within young children, children are encouraged to persevere to meet their goals and targets. As a part of the learning journey experienced in the Early Years developing the understanding of rules and routines is an integral part that runs parallel to all.
From 2021, all schools must teach Relationships Education.
As a school we are not introducing compulsory sex education. We are introducing Relationships Education to put in place the building blocks needed for positive and safe relationships of all kinds. Relationships Education is where we want to support the children within our school to be happy, healthy and safe. It is about the understanding of the importance of stable and loving relationships, respect, love and care, for family life. It involves acquiring information, developing skills and forming positive beliefs, values and attitudes.
This is repeated over the years so that the children can build upon and refine their skills in each area.
