The National Guidance of PSHE says:-

Schools should seek to use PSHE education to build, where appropriate, on the statutory content already outlined in the national curriculum, the basic school curriculum and in statutory guidance on: drug education, financial education, sex and relationship education (SRE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.

At Eastlands Primary School we aim to equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.

In 2020, The Department for Education produced statutory guidance on the teaching of Relationships and Health Education (RHE) within the PSHE curriculum.

Through our PSHE and linked areas such as Relationship & Health Education (RHE) we intend to provide a curriculum which is accessible to all through high-quality, age appropriate teaching. Children will be taught how to stay healthy, how to stay safe on and off-line, how to manage risks safely, how to manage their emotions and to understand and develop safe and healthy relationships both now and in their future lives.

At Eastlands Primary we aim to provide our children with the knowledge and skills to: -

  1. know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way.
  2. understand the key building blocks of healthy, respectful relationships, focusing on family and friendships, in all contexts, including online.
  3. Understand factors for their own wellbeing, develop resilience and character, so children are happy, successful and productive members of society.
  4. achieve goals, both academic and personal and to recover from knocks and challenging periods in their lives.
  5. develop personal attributes including kindness, integrity, generosity, and honesty.
  6. help children to become successful and happy adults, who make a meaningful contribution to society.







Teaching is taken from a long-term plan, which sets out the units to be covered by each year group, each half term.  Long-term planning has been developed around the Cambridgeshire PSHE and Protective Behaviours scheme, which provide the children with up-to-date learning, relevant to their own lives in the modern world.

We deliver the PSHE curriculum, including statutory Relationships and Sex education elements through weekly PSHE lessons.

These cover: 

  • Beginning and Belonging
  • Family and friends 
  • Anti-bullying
  • Me and My World
  • Working together
  • Financial Capability
  • My body and growing up 
  • Relationships and Sex Education
  • Keeping Safe (incl. Drug Education)
  • Managing Risk
  • Safety Contexts
  • Healthy Lifestyles 

PSHE Subject Drivers 




We teach fundamental British Values, equality, diversity and community cohesion, alongside establishing behaviours and conditions for learning through weekly assemblies and the core school values.  

Protective Behaviours is a practical and down to earth approach to personal safety. The aim of the programme is to teach our children about how to feel safe, how to talk about their feelings and how to recognise safe and unsafe feelings. This helps children to feel safe to have an adventurous approach to life that satisfies their desire for fun and excitement without living in fear. Protective Behaviours helps children to recognise and trust their intuitive feelings – early warning signs – and to support them in developing a range of strategies for self-protection.

Pupil voice is gathered after each unit taught and an assessment is completed for PSHE with tracking of specific groups. This data is then analysed along with monitoring evidence to plan the next term’s focus on the improvement of PSHE teaching.





Our pupils will develop the knowledge and skills to enable them to become confident, healthy happy successful individuals and productive members of the school community and society.   Pupils will have the confidence, resilience and self-esteem needed to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. In developing confidence and resilience, the children should have higher aspirations and also be better prepared to learn and achieve well in all subjects of the wider curriculum.  They develop the resilience and character and make informed choices regarding personal and social issues. They possess personal attributes such as kindness, integrity, generosity and honesty. They take responsibility for their own behaviour, show initiative and understand of how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality in which the school is situated and to society more widely. By developing relationships and empathy for others, pupils will have respect for both pupils and adults in school,

They can distinguish between right and wrong and respect the civil and criminal law of England. They are encouraged to develop a respect for democracy and support participation in the democratic process, including respect for the basis on which law is made and applied in England. They are encouraged to build respect for other people, paying particular regard to the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010. Through the curriculum and ethos of our school they are taught tolerance and importance of harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling pupils to acquire an appreciation of and respect for their own and other cultures.  By understanding what makes a safe and healthy relationship, children will know how to assess and deal with people they meet both off and on-line preventing them from being put in high-risk situations. They recognise potential risks and how to manage these risks safely. Our children know and understand what constitutes healthy lifestyle and what makes a good healthy relationship with others.
