Witherley Church of England Primary School



Please note that the PSHE/RSE Policies are currently under review and the new ones will be uploaded as soon as they have been approved.


PSHE/RSE teaches us how to make informed choices and be enterprising and ambitious. Through PSHE/RSE education, we focus on achieving our potential by supporting our wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect our ability to learn, such as anxiety and unhealthy relationships. In PSHE/RSE, we learn the importance of a healthy lifestyle and positive relationships.


"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." ~ Nelson Mandela.


At Witherley CE Primary School, good relationships are fundamental to our ethos and our success in being a happy, caring and safe school. We aim for the children in our school to acquire the appropriate knowledge, develop their skills and form positive beliefs, values and attitudes. PHSE/RSE has a key part to play in the personal, social, moral and spiritual development of young people.

  • PSHE/RSE education helps pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
  • PSHE/RSE education is a vital part of pupils’ preparation for life and lessons offer a safe space to explore more complex issues.
  • Through PSHE/RSE education, pupils are better prepared to navigate, participate and stay safe in this world.
  • Through PSHE/RSE education, pupils learn about boundaries, including understanding boundaries in friendships with peers and also in families and with others, in a range of contexts, including online.
  • PSHE/RSE education helps children achieve their full potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn, such as anxiety and unhealthy relationships.
