PSHE at King Richard III Infant and Nursery School


At King Richard III Infant and Nursery School, we believe that our approach to PSHE should enable our children to become healthier, to show growing independence and to develop into responsible members of society.


We aim to help our children to understand how they are developing personally and socially, and – in an age-appropriate way - we help them to consider many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.


We encourage our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community. This helps the children to develop their own self-worth.


Our children are taught about their rights and responsibilities. They learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse and multicultural society and, in our broad and rich school community, they consider the similarities and differences between themselves and others.


Recognising the impact of the recent pandemic, and the effect that isolation and the lockdown had on mental health, our curriculum and ethos supports the mental and emotional needs of all pupils, staff and their families.


Curriculum Implementation

  • PSHE lessons take place in class for half an hour a week.
  • PSHE themes are also covered through our whole school assemblies.
  • Teachers deliver the PSHE curriculum with the support of the PSHE Association, their programme of study, ‘programme builders’ and their quality marked resources. The PSHE programme of study is structured around an overarching question for each term. These begin in KS1 as ‘What?’ and ‘Who?’ questions.
  • Just as in any other lesson, teachers draw upon resources to support the learning of all pupils in regards to ability or SEND need. This could come in the form of having smaller group discussions or using story books or social stories which supplement the key theme/message being taught within a lesson.
  • PSHE is assessed on a 1, 2, 3 assessment model using Insight, 3 times per year.

In the last school year, we adopted the PSHE Association's 'Questions-based' model of PSHE teaching. The Association asks schools not to share the full model on their websites. This is the overview of the questions/themes, which we are allowed to share:


If you'd like to read more, please do come into school to discuss this with us and we'll be happy to share paper copies of the plans with you. 

There are lots of activities available to support children in their Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and understanding of living in the wider-world. Below are some suggestions from the PSHE planning documents that you can also access at home!
