PSHE: Intent, Implementation & Impact


At Tritlington Church of England First School our PSHE/ RSE curriculum enables our pupils to stay safe and be happy, healthy, independent, responsible members of society, preparing them for life now and in the future. 

It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially and addresses many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up in today’s world.  

We provide our pupils with opportunities to explore and challenge a range of values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities, and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. 

We celebrate diversity and aim to build understanding and respect between all people.  We aim to develop our pupils’ positive mental health and well-being and empower them with the knowledge and understanding of why looking after their mental health is important and how this can be achieved.


Our curriculum focuses on three key learning themes:

  • health and well-being

  • relationships

  • living in the wider world

We use Jigsaw PSHE resources to ensure we have a well planned progression of knowledge and skills throughout school.  This scheme of work provides many opportunities to link this learning to British Values, our Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development and our school values. Our whole school worship is also planned to make links with these other areas of learning. 


Our PSHE curriculum prepares our pupils for life in a diverse, global community.  We believe our curriculum:

  • Boosts our pupils’ life chances

  • Helps them to stay safe both online and offline

  • Improves their physical and emotional health

  • Helps them to develop the character, resilience and skills they need to succeed academically and also later in life when they join the workplace

  • Our children will have the capacity to control and express their emotions, and handle interpersonal relationships

  • Our children will become confident and successful lifelong learners, demonstrating the Christian Values to ensure they let their individual lights shine as they make the right choices about their learning
