PSHE and RSE at Eaton Bray Academy

Our PSHE Curriculum

At Eaton Bray Academy we believe that our Personal Social and Health Education curriculum reflects PSHE as providing:

  • The skills to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society
  • The knowledge and understanding of how they are developing personally and socially, including the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up 
  • Positive attitudes about rights and responsibilities 
  • Collaborative and co-operative skills, working as part of a diverse population 

Through PSHE we encourage children to become independent, confident, healthy and responsible members of society, as well as developing the ‘whole child’ intellectually, morally, socially and spiritually.  

We believe that PSHE contributes to our school’s values and beliefs and enables pupils to keep children and young people safe, physically and emotionally healthy and prepared for life and work. 

To do this pupils will experience, as they go through the school, a sequenced programme of learning so that they are equipped with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions. 

At EBA we use the Connect PSHE Scheme of Work. Please refer to the table below for the broad topics covered, which are differentiated and expanded accordingly for each year group:


  • Exercise
  • Self-care
  • Give to others
  • Connect with others
  • Challenge yourself
  • Embrace  the moment 


Owing to covid 19 we have reflected and modified our curriculum so that children:

  • Acquire the skills and experiences they lost during covid (closing gaps). We will use the Catch Up funding to meet the needs of individuals or groups as appropriate 
  • Deepening the personal attributes that children need to develop he whole child 
  • Learning has been adapted and modified, and remain fluid and responsive depending on the needs of the individuals at that given time

As a consequence of experiencing a rich, deep and varied PSHE curriculum growing evidence from  the PSHE Association suggests  that this will have a significant impact on pupils’ academic achievement, employability and future life chances.

Progression of Skills in the PSHE Curriculum

At Eaton Bray Academy the progression of skills in PSHE is clearly set out throughout each stage of a child’s learning.



RSE at Eaton Bray Academy will follow the objectives set out within the DfE Guidance For
Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education (Statutory from September
2020) and will be supported through the use of the ‘Connect PSHE’ online Scheme of
Work, found at:
RSE is linked to other lifestyle issues such as alcohol and drugs, and seen as an integral
element of a holistic approach to young people’s personal and social development. Sex
Education is not compulsory for Primary aged children, instead ‘Relationships Education’
is the main focus.
RSE contributes to our school’s ethos of providing a strong foundation for pupils’ futures, in
all aspects of their life. It also ensures that we foster a happy, safe and inclusive
environment for all members of our school community.

In our school approach we aim through implicit and explicit learning experiences to:
• Foster self-esteem and respect for others
• Focus on all aspects of a child’s life, including their mental and physical health
• Foster happiness through mutual care, respect and communication
• Nurture a partnership between caring adults – Governors, teachers, ancillary staff
and parents – to ensure sensitive support for young people as they grow and mature
• Encourage young people to enjoy a range of relationships based upon mutual trust
and respect, free from any abuse
• Generate an atmosphere where questions and discussion can take place freely
• Promote the spiritual, moral, cultural. Mental, physical and social development of
pupils at the school and of society
• Prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life
• Ensure that Sex and Relationships Education is integrated into the curriculum and
not isolated, taken out of context or over emphasised in any way

The school will work towards this aim in partnership with its young people and parents.
This reflects our school commitment to work with all members of the school community
and develop strong connections with families.

We have consulted parents with regards to our RSE policy which can be found on this page.
