Planning PSHE education

Everything you need to plan effective PSHE education.

About the PSHE education curriculum

The most effective model of delivery for personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is a sequenced, spiral programme that builds on prior learning as pupils progress through school. And like any other school curriculum subject, it needs regular curriculum time – at least an hour a week ideally.

It is now also a statutory requirement to teach the majority of the subject. This statutory content – often referred to as RSHE – includes Relationships Education (KS1-2), Relationships and Sex Education (KS3-4) and Health Education from key stages 1 to 4. And though not yet statutory, economic wellbeing, careers and personal safety should also feature in any good quality PSHE education programme.
