PSHE & RSE
Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education/RELATIONSHIPS & SEX EDUCATION
The importance of PSHE education in, for example, preventing bullying, prejudice, substance misuse, sexual exploitation, unplanned teenage pregnancy and in contributing to positive physical, emotional and mental health and healthy relationships is increasingly recognised in the UK and throughout Brighton and Hove. Therefore, at Coombe Road Primary School, PSHE education is a central part of our curriculum as it enables our pupils to build healthy friendships and relationships and keep themselves safe now and in the future. We believe that effective PSHE education supports the teaching of behaviour for learning, and that it contributes to the wellbeing, safety and achievement of all pupils in our school.
PSHE education involves the development of knowledge and understanding skills, and provides opportunities to explore attitudes and values. It is delivered through the three core, inter-related themes of:
- Health and Wellbeing
- Living in the wider world
Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Drug, Alcohol and Tobacco Education (DATE) are delivered as part of these overlapping themes, as well as SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural learning).

As a school we have adopted the Jigsaw Scheme of Work which closely follows Brighton & Hove's programme of study for PSHE. The content overview can be found below the file list, which contains downloadable guides and where SMSC, RSE and British Values link into the study:
