Personal Social Health Education (PSHE) is the planned provision for pupils’ personal, social development (PSD). It helps to give children and young people the skills, knowledge and attitudes and values they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. It helps them to understand how they are developing personally and socially, and addresses many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.

It has 3 main outcomes:

  • Development of personal and social skills essential to effective communication, working with others, taking responsibilty for oneself, learning and achievement, and management of health and wellbeing.
  • Acquisition of relevant information on a range of topics including emotional health and wellbeing, relationships, healthy eating and exercise, sexual health and substance misuse.
  • Clarification and development of attitudes and values that support self esteem, are postive to health and wellbeing and encourage active participation.


Explicit and coherent provision of PSHE in schools’ will helps a school achieve 2 broad aims:

  • To provide opportunities for all pupils to learn and achieve.
  • To prepare all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.


In the Secondary Curriculum, PSHE has been redefined to include economic aspects of learning, and contributes to a greater emphasis in the whole curriculum on personal development.
