PSHE Long Term Plan

PSHE at Adel


Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) is a subject taught in our school through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. . It deals with the real life issues affecting ourselves, our school, our families and our communities.


At our school our aim is to enable every child to make a positive contribution to the world both now and in the future. PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) together with SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Cultural and Social education) and British Values, ensure pupils’ current learning helps prepare them for their life ahead. By teaching pupils to stay safe and healthy, and by building self-esteem, resilience and empathy, an effective PSHE programme can tackle barriers to learning and raise aspirations.


PSHE is taking place all the time in our school. It is reflected in the aims of the school and in our school environment.  However, time is also given for PSHE to be taught as a discrete subject in every year group.


At Adel, we follow the You, Me, PSHE scheme which sits alongside our SEMH MindMate lessons.


You, Me, PSHE covers the following areas:

  • Physical health and wellbeing
  • Mental Health and wellbeing
  • Drug, alcohol and tobacco education
  • Identity, society and equality
  • Careers, financial capability and economic wellbeing
  • Keeping safe and managing risk
  • Relationships and sex education


We will be teaching our children about Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) through the MindMate lessons which have been developed by teachers and mental health professionals here in Leeds. It also aims to provide pupils with the skills to manage their own emotional and mental wellbeing.


The lessons are interactive and will help children:

  • Understand their own feelings
  • Understand the emotions and mental health needs of others
  • Understand the change during transition times and how to cope with it
  • Support friends and family to be mentally well
  • Reduce the stigma associated with mental health
  • Deal with exam stress through coping techniques

PSHE Celebration Day - January 23rd 2019

The whole school participated in our PSHE day today from Nursery through to Year Six. It was an opportunity to share with parents the fantastic work that goes on in school and for parents to be able to participate in a PSHE session in their child's classroom. Sessions included Keeping Healthy, Friendships and Circle time sessions. It was amazing to see all of the fantastic work that takes place. Parents were then invited to participate in a session on the importance of PSHE with particular reference to Relationship and Sex Education. Thank you to all those parents who were able to attend.
