PSHE (Personal, Social & Health Education)

PSHE at Ashton Gate


At Ashton Gate Primary School we will always hold the health, wellbeing and personal development of the children in our care amongst our highest priorities. It is a priority that arises out of the responsibility we bear for our pupils as whole and rounded individuals, and out of a recognition that physical and emotional health, forms the essential foundation for successful learning. 


The PSHE Education curriculum that we are following, offers an integrated approach to the Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning together with the broader aspects of the PSHE curriculum.  This provides a model for consistent, progressive and comprehensive coverage of pupils’ entitlement in this area of learning.


The main themes of teaching are:

'A time for change' (rules, respect, similarities and differences),

'Managing Myself' (Consequences of actions, anti-bullying off and online),

'Making Sense of the World Around us' (money, charity, global issues),

'The Power of Choice' (Healthy mind, healthy body),

'Relationship and Sex Education',

'Staying Safe' (keeping myself safe on and offline).


Below are associated documents and policies which refer to aspects of the PSHE curriculum and the well-being of children.
