Life Education (PHSCE)


(Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education)

“PSHE education is a planned programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives. As part of a whole school approach, PSHE develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.” The PSHE Association

In September 2013, the DfE published a new National Curriculum. Whilst PSHE education remains a non-statutory subject, section 2.5 of the National Curriculum framework document states that:

 ‘All schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice.’

At Wensley Fold we will be following a flexible scheme of work tailored to the needs of our pupils. Our long term plan showing coverage across year groups is available below.

Life Education is embedded throughout daily life at Wensley Fold. We model positive relationships, self-image and communication skills with others in all our day-to-day interactions, as well as teaching skills explicitly in Circle Time and in Life Education sessions including our annual Stay Safe Week which has a different focus each year according to the needs of our pupils and our community.

At Wensley Fold we make each day count and aim to ensure that we produce well-rounded, happy and healthy children – ready for the wider world.

Please see our policies page for further details on our policies, including SRE (Sex and Relationships) and Drugs.

Friendship Week 7-11th March 2016

This year we celebrated the importance of friendship and promoted our anti-bullying ethos with our annual Friendship Week. This year the focus was on the importance of speaking out against bullying…

We enjoyed lots of activities exploring issues around the importance of being a good friend and what this means. We also explored our feelings and ideas about being a bystander and what we should do if we witnessed bulling. We had an anti-bullying assembly and awarded book tokens to a person in each class who was a ‘Fab Friend’.

Mr Simpson worked with children throughout school to create a video to spread the word about the importance of speaking out against bullying.


We enjoyed learning about Life Education during our annual Stay Safe Week (week beginning 10 November 2014).

Our focus for this year was Safe Touch.

We had fun taking part in peer massage sessions, remembering the importance of respecting our own privacy and the privacy of others.
