‘Challenges are what makes life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” Joshua J. Marine

At Abingdon Primary School our vision is to equip children with the skills to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Evidence shows that well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. Our PSHE curriculum supports our school to be a thriving, purposeful learning community where adults and children work together in an environment where careful planning results in high quality teaching and learning. 

At Abingdon Primary School our PSHE curriculum aims to develop the skills and attributes of resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team working and critical thinking in the context of learning grouped into three core themes: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World.

PSHE stands for Personal, Social and Health Education. Our PSHE curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements for teaching Relationships Sex and Health Education (RSHE). The RSHE aspects are delivered through the FPA Growing Up With Yasmine and Tom programme. This programme is approved by the PSHE Association and is in line with DFE guidance.

Further information on the RSHE programme can be found here:

The full school policy for teaching RSHE at Abingdon Primary School can be found under the policies tab on the school website.
