What is Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)?  

PSHE education is a planned programme that supports and enhances the learning and development of children and young people. The programme allows children to acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. At Bishop Martin C.E. Primary School we want all children to successfully develop qualities, skills and attributes they need to thrive as happy children and pupils, well-rounded individuals, and family members and members of society.  


PSHE prepares our children to manage many of the most important and critical opportunities they will face growing up. They learn how to deal with life challenges, face difficulties head on and become responsible for their actions and behaviour in such a rapidly challenging and changing time. PSHE helps children to apply the knowledge and understanding they learn in all subjects, to practical, real-life situations while helping them to feel safe and secure enough to fulfil their academic potential.
