PSHE stands for Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education. The National Curriculum states that 'all schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education.'
PSHE is a school subject through which pupils develop knowledge, skills and attributes to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. PSHE also helps pupils to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. It also helps to prepare children for making responsible decisions about a whole range of subjects, from alcohol and drugs, to succeeding in their first job. PSHE helps students to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up.
Evidence shows that PSHE has an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particuarly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged pupils. PSHE develops attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-mangement, teamwork and critical thinking. In PSHE, this learning is grouped into three core themes:
*Health and Wellbeing
*Living in the Wider World
