PSHE - Personal, Social, Health & Economic education is taught in all classes throughout school. We have created our own long term plan adopted from one produced by the National PSHE association. We teach from the long term plan but also tackle any issues which arise in individual classes, from whole school concerns or national festivals & initiatives.

RSHE - Relationships, Sex and Health education is part of the PSHE curriculum. The relationships and health sections are compulsary; parents have the right to withdraw their children from sex education.


At Hepworth J & I School we want to provide a PSHE curriculum that focuses on developing knowledge, skills and attributes to enable pupils to live healthily, have positive and healthy relationships and live successfully in the wider world. All whilst keeping safe and learning how to make good choices. Pupils can talk freely in lessons in an atmosphere of mutual respect and are able to access PSHE and well-being support throughout school, not just in timetables lessons.

Independent, confident and resilient life long learners who are aware of risk and understand how to keep themselves and others safe.


PSHE begins in EYFS and is built upon throughout their time at Hepworth to provide them lifelong skills

A whole school approach where each year group prepares the pupils for the next step in their education.
