PSHE - 3 I's


At Hempstalls we believe that PSHE is an integral part of the curriculum and we want to ensure that we give our pupils the lifelong skills that will equip them for their futures and support them in becoming valued and active members of society. We want all our children to have high aspirations for their future. We aim to provide a safe and caring environment, which will enable each child to grow and adapt in order to reach their full potential, spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, morally, physically and socially.

By the end of their time at Hempstalls we want our children to:

  • Develop their confidence when expressing opinions
  • Develop the skills and understanding of how to keep themselves safe and healthy
  • To show tolerance of others beliefs, religions and life choices
  • To understand the changes which occur through puberty
  • To build positive, respectful relationships with other people
  • To develop their confidence and make the most of their abilities
  • Develop self-esteem and make informed choices regarding personal and social issues
  • Prepare children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life
  • To be able to manage negative feelings
  • To have the confidence to overcome barriers and understand that they have the ability to succeed


At Hempstalls Primary School we have adapted the Ealing Scheme of work for PSHE Education, Citizenship and Seal in order to give our pupils an effective PSHE curriculum so that we give our children the skills they need to succeed in their school life and in the future.

Through our curriculum we cover the requirements of the national curriculum. We also follow the Yasmin and Tom Scheme of work in order to equip our pupils with the knowledge and understanding of the changes and responsibilities which occur when reaching puberty.

Teachers are given plans that are taught once a week which cover the requirements of the National Curriculum however, the teaching of PSHE is cross curricular and is implemented throughout our curriculum. PSHE is also to be addressed on a daily basis as questions and incidents arise. Teachers hold reflection time at the end of the day to address questions raised through circle times or to discuss events from the day, this allows children to reflect on their understanding and gives the children responsibility for their learning.

Each classroom has a designated board where PSHE/British Values and SRE learning can be displayed, teachers use these boards to reinforce the learning that has taken place and use these as a basis for their discussions at reflection times. 

We feel that it is imperative that PSHE is taught now as children are facing more pressures within a modern society and we need to support our children to navigate through the challenges they may face and give them the knowledge and confidence they need in order to thrive.


Through the teaching of PSHE lessons in Hempstalls Primary School our children will have the knowledge and understanding of how to succeed in their future social and personal lives as well as their roles in society. They will be equipped with tools to maintain healthy and positive lifestyles with regard to relationships, diet and their own personal identity. Through our PSHE lessons we want our pupils to develop respect for themselves and others. We also want our pupils to recognise and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual respect, Rule of law and Liberty. We want our children to strive to be the best they can be and have high hopes and aspirations for their school work and for their futures.
