Willow Tree Primary School

Realise your potential, Realise your goal, Reach for the stars whilst Growing, Learning and Achieving Together


Welcome to our PSHE information page.  

Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. Ever teacher delivers PSHE lessons, drawing on good practice, and this expectation is outlined in the PSHE policy (see below).

PSHE is a non-statutory subject. To allow teachers the flexibility to deliver high-quality PSHE we purchase two high quality schemes called Jigsaw and No Outsiders.   PSHE encompasses many areas of study.  Our teachers are best placed to understand the needs of their pupils and deliver sessions sensitively.

We tailor our PSHE programme to reflect the needs of our pupils.  Our schemes of work equip the children with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.

At Willow Tree we 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.

Relationships and sex education

Relationships and sex education (RSE) is an important part of PSHE education. Relationships education is compulsory for all primary school pupils.

When we provide RSE  sessions, we have regard to the Secretary of State’s guidance, as is our statutory duty.  

The content of the sessions can be seen in the documents below.
