Ashton Under Hill First School

Shaping Bright Futures Together

PSHE (Personal, social, health and economic education)




  • Develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to lead confident and independent lives in the wider world
  • Become informed, active and responsible citizens
  • Experience the process of democracy
  • Develop physical, emotional and mentally healthy lifestyles and learn how to keep safe
  • Learn about healthy relationships



At Ashton under Hill First School PSHE is taught each week as a discreet subject throughout Key Stage 1 and 2. The curriculum consists of three core themes :

  • Relationships
  • Living in the wider world: economic wellbeing and being a responsible citizen
  • Health and wellbeing

Our teaching in PSHE follows a spiral curriculum where strands within the  three core themes are  revisited and developed each year according to the stage of development and needs of the children .

Through PSHE, we nurture and embed our school values of Friendship, Resilience, Respect, Curiosity and Working together and we also fulfil our statutory duty to  provide Relationships Education and Health Education at Key Stages 1 and 2.

We work closely with Bredon Hill Academy to ensure continuity and progression within PSHE.
