PSHE and Relationship Education

At Holy Trinity Church School, we believe our PSHE teaching will give our children the skills and understanding to become healthy, secure, independent and responsible members of society. Our aim is to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and in society. We prepare our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

PSHE and RSE education offers both explicit and implicit learning opportunities and experiences which reflect pupils’ increasing independence and physical and social awareness as they move through the school. It builds on the skills that pupils started to acquire during the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to develop effective relationships, assume greater personal responsibility and manage personal safety, including online. PSHE education helps pupils to cope with the changes at puberty, introduces them to a wider world and enables them to make an active contribution to their communities.
