Leigh Primary School


PSHE stands for Personal, social, health and economic education. To allow teachers the flexibility to deliver high-quality PSHE the government consider it unnecessary to provide new standardised frameworks or programmes of study. PSHE can encompass many areas of study. It is agreed that teachers are best placed to understand the needs of their pupils and do not need additional central prescription.

All schools should teach PSHE, drawing on good practice, and this expectation is outlined in the introduction of the national curriculum. At Leigh we have a detailed and unique PSHE programme of study which also encompasses learning from SEAL (social, emotional aspects of learning), RSE (Relationships and Sex Education), and citizenship. Our PSHE education programme is called 'ACT RIGHT'  and it is the backbone upon which we build our curriculum and school ethos.

R   -  Resilience

I    -  Independence

G   - Good communication

H   - Healthy bodies and minds

T    - Teamwork

Our curriuclum aims to produce children who are resilient, independent, communicative, healthy, can work within teams and are secondary ready; these qualities can only enhance their learning throughout their school career.

Below you can follow the link to read our PSHE curriculum. In KS2, children begin to assess their progress in the 5 aforementioned skills using their 'ACT RIGHT passports'.

Further information regarding our new PSHE curriculum will be provided in an Autumn Parent Workshop.
