PSHE/RSE at St Matthew’s

Friendship, Discovery, Prayer



At St Matthew’s PSHE enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society.

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

We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society.

Our intent is that our PSHE Curriculum ensures that every pupil receives a high quality PSHE and RSE education to best prepare them for the world, enabling them to develop and maintain good mental health, healthy relationships, mutual respect and tolerance for one another, economic independence, understanding consent and the knowledge and skills to stay safe, both on and off-line. 


PSHE/RSE is taught on a weekly basis by class teachers. 

The RSE curriculum is taught using the ‘CWP’ materials, ratified by the PSHE association.  This ensures clear progression through the curriculum from Reception to Year Six, quality teaching and resources that ensure we are fully compliant with the statutory and non-statutory elements of the RSE curriculum through engaging lessons and activities.

The lessons are clearly mapped to follow the National Curriculum for science and DfE Statutory Guidance on Relationships Education, Relationship and Sex Education and Health Education. The majority of RSE will be delivered through PSHE and science lessons.

Opportunities within assemblies and other school activities help support the PSHE & the RSE curriculum.



Children’s knowledge in each core area of PSHE and RSE builds and develops as they move through the school

For ALL children to make good and sustained progress and attainment in this subject

The majority of progress will be assessed through class based discussion.

That children can articulate how the teaching within PSHE and RSE can support them throughout life.
