Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.  

We use a variety of strategies to engage our pupils. 

PHSE Learning styles

What we teach:  

Micklefield CE Primary follows the You, Me and PHSE scheme to provide a clear curriculum with meaningful and engaging learning opportunities. As we have mixed aged classes, we teach objectives every other year. However, for Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) and drug, alcohol and tobacco education – these will only be taught to the relevant year group. Our learning covers: 

  • Keeping safe and managing risk 

  • Mental health and emotional wellbeing  

  • Physical health and wellbeing  

  • Sex and relationship education  

  • Careers, financial capability and economic wellbeing  

  • Identity, society and equality  

  • Drug, alcohol and tobacco education 


A survey was sent out in Spring 2021 to ask our parents their thoughts and opinions about teaching statutory Relationship and Sex Education in primary schools. These are the results from the survey.

A copy of the Relationship and Sex Education Draft Policy is now available either through the school website or on paper if required. Please read this as it covers all the statutory requirements about what is to be covered in primary schools. It also includes more details as to what will be taught in each year group. If there is anything you would like to discuss or amend in the draft policy please speak to the class teacher or email the office.
