At Moorhill Primary school we ensure our PSHE (including RSE) curriculum provides pupils with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their potential as individuals and within the community. We aim to deliver a curriculum that is accessible to all and provides children with knowledge and skills they can use beyond their school years. Our PSHE curriculum is tailored to the needs of our pupils and is changed and adapted based on identified needs within our school community, locally or nationally. We aim to give pupils the confidence they need to tackle many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that they might face growing up in our culturally rich and diverse world.


The programme of study we use for delivering PSHE lessons has been adapted from the PSHE association and has been tailored to meet the needs of the students at Moorhill. Three core themes are followed: Health and Well-being, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. Year groups work on similar themes at the same time, building a spiral programme year on year where children are able to build on and extend prior learning.

PSHE is not only delivered as part of curriculum-based lessons, but through our whole-school core values: self-belief, teamwork, ambitions and aspirations, respect and effort which we embed through all that we do. We aim to encourage pupils to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of their school and community, for example, fundraising events, Votes for Schools, online safety and through developing children's teamwork and leadership skills through school council, anti-bullying ambassadors and sports leaders.


Our PSHE curriculum enables children to become emotionally literate, confident, tolerant and well-rounded adults. They will have developed skills needed for life-long learning and will understand their part in being a global citizen, understand healthy relationships, their rights and be respectful and tolerant of others.

Learners with Special Educational Needs

At Moorhill, we scaffold and adapt the learning in PSHE to enable all learners to succeed. Learning is adapted through:

- use of technological resources to support learning.
- peer support
- explicit teaching and modelling
- scaffolded resources
- breaking down information and vocabulary
- adult support
providing a clear language model
