PSHE, RSHE and British Values

PSHE at Springfield

“PSHE Education (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) is a planned programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to successfully manage their lives – now and in the future. As part of a whole-school approach, PSHE Education develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.” The PSHE Association.


At Springfield our comprehensive PSHE teaching:

  • Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and 
  • Prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. 


At Springfield we use The PSHE Association and 1Decision resources to support our teaching.



It is now a statutory requirement for schools in England to teach Relationships/Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE). These changes are vital to support the social and emotional development of children and young people. At Springfield RSE is delivered through the PSHE curriculum.

Through consultation with parents, staff and governors, we selected year group objectives that are best suited to the children at Springfield.

Following statutory guidance, our Relationships Education objectives focus on teaching the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive and healthy relationships.

Please see the new RSHE policy for further information.
