PSHE inlcuding HRE
The NEW Statutory PSHE including Health and Relationships Education.
A message from the Secretary of State:
Today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young people need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way.
In primary schools, we want the subject to put in place the key building blocks of healthy, respectful relationships, focusing on family and friendships, in all contexts, including online. This will sit alongside the essential understanding of how to be healthy.
Teaching about mental well-being is central to these subjects, especially as a priority for parents is their children’s happiness. The new subject content will give them the knowledge and capability to take care of themselves and receive support if problems arise.
