Programme of Study for PSHE Education (Key stages 1–5)


The PSHE Programme of Study was produced in consultation with a wide variety of agencies and practitioners to meet the needs of today’s pupils and is regularly updated to meet these changing needs.

The programme of study includes three core themes:

  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Relationships
  • Living in the Wider World

We are committed to raising the standards of the subject nationally so offer this guidance free of charge to non-members of the Association, though in order to bring this programme of study to life and tailor it to the specific needs of your school, pupils and community we recommend the additional planning resources, support and CPD available through Association membership.

Our Programme of Study for PSHE education is now regularly signposted by the Government as the go-to guidance for teachers and schools when planning their PSHE education curriculum.

PSHE Planning Toolkits

  • Ensure a tailored best-practice curriculum design
