PSHE is undergoing changes. 

It was a non-statutory part of the curriculum.

From 2020 this changes and the 'Relationships' and 'Health' aspects are  becoming statutory.


All aspects of PSHE are currently under review  and consultations with pupils, staff, governors and parents will be undertaken.



From 2020, the following subjects will become compulsory in applicable schools in England.

  • relationship education in primary schools
  • relationship and sex education in secondary schools
  • health education in state funded primary and secondary schools

These subjects will support all young people to be happy, healthy and safe. Equipping them for life as an adult in British society.

What are British values?

According to Ofsted, British values are:


the rule of law; 

individual liberty; 

mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith

At Cedars Primary School we value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils & families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate these. We have found this approach to be enriching for all parties as it teaches tolerance & respect for the differences and similarities in our community and the wider world. Underpinning all of this is a range of topics which have strong links including PSHCE learning, collective worship & SMSC curriculum.

(SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development)
