 Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education Curriculum  


Here at RMS, our Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education Curriculum (P.S.H.S.E.E) is the core of our wider curriculum and through which our pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work. We want our children to thrive in the development of personal attributes such as kindness, integrity, generosity, and honesty. All at Richmond Methodist Primary School, (RMS), inclusive of adults and children, endeavour to ‘do all the good we can’ and we aim to enable children to continue to be reflective, resilient and responsible members of their local, national and global communities. In particular, we seek to ensure our curriculum is tailored around the specific needs of our children, creating a school community that sets inclusiveness and equality at the heart of everything we do. Our school is a welcoming place and our children believe in the values both British and Christian that underpin who we are. Alongside our Religious Education Curriculum, we aim to place our P.S.H.E curriculum as integral to our Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural education. We also ensure our children gain a sound understanding of financial themes. 


Our curriculum is well planned, sequential and structured. It builds in developmental progression by revisiting themes in each year group, so learning is age appropriate and continually enhances prior learning. In line with the PSHE Association recommendations, our curriculum develops skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team-working and critical thinking in the context of three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education). Our planning incorporates trends identified through data generated through the Growing Up in North Yorkshire Bi-annual Questionnaire and also Pupil Conferencing on themes that matter most to the children themselves. We deliver our P.S.H.E.E. curriculum through a question-based model, using age appropriate stimulus including stories, discussions, role play and online resources. We provide opportunities for children to safely try out their new knowledge, ideas and skills so it can be used confidently in real life situations. Relationships and sex education (RSE), is delivered sensitively and inclusively, with respect to the cultural context of each child and as in integrated part of our developmental PSHE education programme. School recognises that for many themes, parents and carers are the prime educators and school builds on this prior learning. 


Our children are ‘ready, respectful and safe’. They feel welcomed and are welcoming to all people and new experiences. They are reflective, respectful, responsible and resilient. They understand how to keep themselves and others safe.

Talking to your child about Sex and Relationships

The School has a Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Policy, available on request, formed after consultation with parents, teachers and governors. It determines our curriculum which has been planned using statutory guidance and in line with the P.S.H.E Association Programmes of Study. Our RSE content is interwoven within our P.S.H.C.E curriculum and also through other relevant curriculum areas such as Science. The key content of our RSE Policy is detailed in the following letter to parents. LETTER TO PARENTS

British Values

Back to top

At RMS our values are underpinned by the British values of Individual Liberty, Democracy, Tolerance, The Rule of Law and Mutual Respect. Every classroom has a British Values display which is referenced during class discussions where appropriate and a larger, interactive display is situated in the hall where children can record their own thoughts or opinions. This display is referenced in our weekly assemblies by adults and children.

These over arching British Values feed directly into our whole school values, inspired by Christian Values.

We feel this focus on Christian, yet also global generic values, provides preparation for an appreciation of life in modern Britain. This runs along side our learning about people, faiths and cultures both within and beyond Richmond.

Anti Bullying















At RMS we whole heatedly agree with the Anti-Bullying Week aims and spent the week discussing:

  • The definition of respect
  • That bullying is a behaviour choice
  • That we can respectfully disagree with each other i.e. we don't have to be best friends or always agree with each other but we do have to respect each other
  • That we all need to choose to respect each other both face to face and online

We hope this work enables us to continue to learn and grow as members of the school and wider community.
