Coppull St. John's PSHE Curriculum

Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) 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. It helps children and young people to stay healthy and safe, while preparing them to make the most of life and work.


PSHE education also helps pupils to achieve their academic potential. Our programme of study sets out the learning opportunities for Key Stage 1 to 2 based on three core themes:


  • Relationships
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Living in the Wider World


Our programme of study therefore provides a spiral curriculum to develop knowledge, skills and attributes, where prior learning is revisited, reinforced and extended year on year.


As a Church school, we are committed to ensure our children are given every opportunity to:


‘Grow in the Grace and Knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ’


Emphasis is placed upon the physical, mental and spiritual health of our children and we have designed a curriculum which gives children the opportunity to experience the 5 key areas of wellbeing every day: to connect, to keep learning, to give, to be active and encouraged to take notice. A spiral approach is used across the whole curriculum to ensure themes are revisited in a developmentally appropriate manner. There is an awareness of related learning between PSHE and the rest of the curriculum.
