PHSE – Intent, Implementation and Impact



At Sir John Offley CE (VC) School, we aim to provide a high quality PHSE curriculum. We believe that PHSE in as integral part of the curriculum as the skills learnt will equip our children for their future and support them in becoming active members of modern society. Based on the National Curriculum and using the PHSE Association scheme, we aim to provide an environment that will enable each child in our care to grow in understanding and to reach their full potential; spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, morally, physically and socially. Through their understanding of PHSE, children will be able to succeed in many different areas of the curriculum and throughout life as the skills learnt are transferrable.

We strive to ensure that all children will have opportunities to create personal understanding that children will be given the opportunity to both explore and challenge alternative attitudes and beliefs, along with rights and responsibilities. We hope that in teaching a broad and balanced PHSE curriculum, children will develop a range of skills and strategies to live a healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced life.


In ensuring high standards of teaching and learning in PHSE, we implement a curriculum that is progressive throughout the whole school. Our PHSE curriculum is based around three core themes; Health and wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the wider world. The scheme of work also includes opportunities to link British values, Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) and our own school values of Love, Aspiration and Forgiveness into the curriculum.

Throughout the school, each year group builds on the knowledge and skills developed in the year prior, building on what the children already understand.

Children have access to key knowledge, language and meanings in order to understand PSHE and to use this knowledge across the wider curriculum.

At Sir John Offley, assemblies are an important part of each day and therefore we ensure whole school, key stage and class assemblies always make a link to PSHE, British Values and SMSC.


Following the implementation of the broad and balanced PHSE curriculum at Sir John Offley, children will be respectful, responsible, resilient and confident members of society within Madeley and the wider world. Children will demonstrate and apply the British values of Democracy, Tolerance, and Mutual respect, Rule of law and Liberty.

The tools in which our PHSE curriculum provides the children with, will ensure they are able to maintain healthy and positive lifestyles with regard to relationships, diet and their own personal identity. As they become more confident throughout the areas of PHSE, building on their learning year by year, children will understand their personal role in society. The most significant impact we want for our pupils, in line with our school rights and responsibilities, is the development of respect for themselves and respect for others.
