PSHE including Relationship and sex education (RSE)

What does PSHE look like at Dale Hall?

PSHE at Dale Hall is delivered through our immersive curriculum, power of reading text and where appropriate and necessary through discreet lessons, enabling children to develop skills and attributes such as 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.

Our PSHE curriculum reflects our school ethos, demonstrating and encouraging our four values (our 4 bees):

Be respectful

Be responsible

Be safe

Be caring 

Our PSHE skills link closely to our SMSC framework and preparing children for life and work in modern Britain. 


Ideas for home learning

Resources and games to support online safety


A great opportunity to explore kindness and how to help others


A lovely site which has a story to explain and support young children through this challenging time.



Autumn term examples of PSHE learning at Dale Hall
Year 6
We focused on in Autumn term was identifying how the media present information. We explored how the media can portray news and the effect this can have on the public. We explored Fake news and the pupils created information posters to help pupils identify when something might be exaggerated or may even be totally made up.
Year 1
We began the term constructing our class promise, discussing and sharing how we can follow our school four bees and how we will help and support each other. We compiled our class promises together and signed them to say we all understood. Later in the term we explored who we would turn to if we were worried by something and to know the differences between secrets and surprises. 
During the Autumn, the children learnt all about taking turns, making positive relationships with their new friends and adults as well as learning all about Dale Hall's four bees and how they can follow these.
