Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHEE) Education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.
The programme of study covers Key Stages 1 to 5 and is based on three core themes within which there is broad overlap and flexibility:
- Core theme 1: Health & Wellbeing
- Core theme 2: Relationships
- Core theme 3: Living in the Wider World
These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.
When taught well, PSHEE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.
During PSHEE lessons pupils will be given the opportunity to analyse what they do and think but they are also encouraged to question and evaluate their ideas, attitudes and influences. When appropriate, current news items are referred to and discussed.
Lessons will involve a variety of activities to inspire all pupils to participate and pupils are encouraged to express their ideas in different ways – verbal (in discussions and Q&A sessions), through a variety of written formats, visual (posters and pictures) and experiential (for example role-play and the use of artefacts).

Parents do have the right to withdraw their child from all or part of the sex and relationships education provided at Radnor House Sevenoaks except for those parts included in the statutory National Curriculum. Parents should discuss their concerns with the PSHEE coordinator, Mrs Sarah Mosedale at firstname.lastname@example.org .The school will then make alternate arrangements in such cases.
