Personal Social Health Education

PSHE education gives pupils the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. 

We aim to help our children to:


  • grow up to become happy and well-rounded individuals who know how to deal with the modern world;
  • be informed about how to keep themselves safe;
  • understand what makes for good relationships with others;
  • have good relationships with others;  
  • have respect for others;
  • be independent and responsible members of the school community;
  • be positive and active members of a democratic society;
  • develop self-confidence and self-esteem and make informed choices regarding personal and social issues;
  • know and understand what constitutes a healthy lifestyle.


At Bollin, our PSHE is not seen as a ‘bolt-on’ but carries huge significance and has a much greater profile in school. Because we want PSHE to become more than a subject and for it to be the very fabric of Bollin life, we shall no longer refer to it as PSHE, but ‘Bollin Hearts and Minds.’ 
BHM (Bollin Hearts and Minds) will be lived and breathed throughout school: in every classroom, in the values, in the language we model, within our school community. 


Our PSHE Curriculum Framework is broken down into three core areas:

Health and Well-being
Living in the Wider World

Many PSHE objectives are covered through whole school initiatives such as the School Values, Assemblies etc. and many more are covered in our everyday teaching and the on-going conversations we have with the children every single day. When we discuss the themes in a quality text, learn about a new faith in RE or Animals Including Humans in Science, we are covering many of the PSHE objectives.

Cross-curricular Links are natural, not forced. Objectives that are not covered through the curriculum are taught discreetly. All the PSHE objectives have been organised into Year groups by theme.

Every half-term, we have a ‘Feel Good Friday’. Each day is themed and aims to address the areas which we feel are important for our context and which will help us in our aims to support children to become happy, well-rounded individuals who are ready for the modern world. Mornings are spent delivering the content related to the theme for that day, during the afternoon, each year group spends specific PSHE objectives which need teaching discreetly.
