Fairhaven's PSHE curriculum...


At Fairhaven our bespoke PSHE curriculum is designed to develop children's understanding of the core British values.


The Department for Education (2014) has stated in their guidance that the promotion of British values in schools aims to ensure that young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain.


 Examples of the understanding and knowledge pupils are expected to learn include:

  • an understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process

  • an understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law

  • an acceptance that people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour

  • an understanding of the importance of identifying and combatting discrimination

(DfE, 2014)


In consultation with pupils, staff, governors and parents, we have developed a progressive, British values based curriculum on a rolling 2 year cycle to suit our school's structure.


Although PSHE education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education, it is currently a non-statutory subject.


However, all children at Fairhaven Primary School receive rich and meaningful lessons in this subject unless class teachers are informed of any special requests by parents/carers.

Fairhaven's PSHE curriculum

At Fairhaven we aim to ensure:

  • That PSHE and Citizenship will enable all children to have the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives.
  • It will provide them with the necessary skills to be to become informed, active, responsible citizens.
  • The curriculum should provide relevant and challenging learning to all children.

Here are some examples of the hard work that children have been completing in PSHE lessons.
