PSHE education is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. We aim to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, collaboration and critical thinking in the context of learning:


  • Families and relationships
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Safety and the changing body
  • Citizenship
  • Economic wellbeing


Our PSHE curriculum is based on work carried out by the PSHE Association through schemes of work created by Kapow. 

PSHE Curriculum Guidance

St Philip's CE Primary Academy - Relationship Education Statement


At St Philip's CE Primary Academy, we use the Kapow scheme of work for Relationship Education, to ensure that we are following a progressive syllabus which ensures coverage of all statutory elements of the curriculum.  The summary of this scheme can be found below.


Due to the fact that this is a commercial scheme, there are certain elements that we do not cover so as to fulfil our Relationship Education Policy, which has been agreed through consultation with our parents.  The following sections are modified as such:

  • Within Key Stage 1, we will refer to genitals as 'private parts' and not use specific vocabulary (pages 8 and 16).
  • The teaching of puberty will be deferred until Upper Key Stage 2 (Years 5 & 6) - and not as stated on the Kapow paperwork in Year 4.
  • The sections within the Kapow scheme of work relating to Sex Education within Years 5 & 6 will not be taught, in-line with our agreed Relationship Education Policy.  
  • Puberty is taught in single gender groups, taught by same gender staff.  If any child does not identify as one particular gender, discussions with the child and their parents will be had to establish the sessions that they will need to attend.

EYFS Careers Day- Meeting some real heroes 'Paramedics'

World of Work Days

Over the course of 2 days, Year 5 and 6 were visited by 10 visitors from very different careers, including a structural engineer, a doctor, a company director, a banker, a computer programmer and a lawyer. Children had the opportunity to challenge any stereotypes they might have and then explore routes in to different professions. A fabulous opportunity to promote awareness of the varied opportunities that our children can aspire to.

Year 5:

“I helped me think about what I want to be”

 “It was seriously cool and fun”

 “I liked that different people came to visit us”

 “It was a fantastic experience”

Year 6:

“I liked working in a team and learning new things”

 “I liked learning about jobs”

 “We got to meet and work with new people”

 “I learned about profit, loans and fraud which will make us aware for the future”
