Teaching of PSHE and RSHE builds on the following concepts:

Overarching Concepts

1. Identity (their personal qualities, attitudes, skills, attributes and achievements and what influences these) 

2. Relationships (including different types and in different settings) 

3. A healthy (including physically, emotionally and socially) balanced lifestyle (including within relationships, work-life, exercise and rest, spending and saving and diet) 

4. Risk (identification, assessment and how to manage risk rather than simply the avoidance of risk for self and others) and safety (including behaviour and strategies to employ in different settings) 

5. Diversity and equality (in all its forms) 

6. Rights (including the notion of universal human rights), responsibilities (including fairness and justice) and consent (in different contexts) 

7. Change (as something to be managed) and resilience (the skills, strategies and ‘inner resources’ we can draw on when faced with challenging change or circumstance) 

8. Power (how it is used and encountered in a variety of contexts including persuasion, bullying, negotiation and ‘win-win’ outcomes) 

9. Career (including enterprise, employability and economic understanding) 

PSHE education makes a significant contribution to the development of a wide range of essential skills.
