At Hunmanby Primary School, our well planned PSHE curriculum is designed to equip all of our pupils for the real world and to meet all of our pupils needs. We want our children to have high aspirations; a strong belief in themselves and to realise that anything is possible if they put their mind to it.

What do we want for our pupils? 

 -To develop a confidence in sharing their own thoughts and opinions with others

-To show tolerance of others’ beliefs and life choices

-To develop skills and attributes to keep themselves healthy and safe

-To develop an attitude of a responsible citizen

-To build positive, respectful relationships with other people


Our PSHE curriculum builds on prior learning by following the progressive frameworks outlined in the North Yorkshire County Council PSHE and Citizenship Entitlement scheme of work. This scheme of work covers the following strands:

-Me and my relationships

-Keeping myself safe

-My healthy lifestyle

-Becoming an active citizen

-Me and my future

This scheme of work is timetables carefully so that it links to events such as Anti-Bullying week and Internet Safety week.

Although we teach PSHE on a weekly basis, PSHE also must be taught incidentally and teachers must be flexible and respond to pupils’ needs and current world affairs.

At Hunmanby Primary School we aim to promote and reflect British Values in all that we do. We pride ourselves on a whole school approach to promoting the spiritual, moral, cultural and social development of our pupils.


The impact of our curriculum will not only be seen in pupils work but by looking at the type of people our pupils become. Our pupils will become confident, tolerant, independent and well rounded individuals who are prepared for life beyond Hunmanby Primary School. We want our children to be able to approach a range of real life situations with confidence and to apply their skills when navigating themselves through modern life.

The impact of PSHE lessons will be measured by:

-Looking at evidence of pupils’ work. Each class from Year 1-6 have a PSHE book that evidence of PSHE lessons is collected in. In EYFS, each class has a PSHE big book that includes information, photos and pupil voice of PSHE activities.

– Pupil voice (PSHE lead will interview a range of children termly about their learning)

– Self-assessment

– Celebration assemblies
