National curriculum framework states that all schools should make provision for PSHE education, drawing on good practice. In order to help schools to meet this objective, our programme of study identifies the key concepts, skills and attributes that are developed through PSHE education. These help schools to fulfil their statutory responsibility to support pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.
