PSHE Association briefing on the social mobility case for statutory PSHE

This briefing explains how PSHE education has significant potential to boost pupils’ life chances, helping them to develop the character, resilience and skills they need to succeed academically and in the workplace and reducing barriers to learning, particularly for the most disadvantaged pupils

This new briefing shows that when delivered by trained teachers in line with best practice principles, PSHE education has significant potential to boost pupils’ life chances, helping them to develop the character, resilience and skills they need to succeed academically and in the workplace and reducing barriers to learning, particularly for the most disadvantaged pupils. It can provide opportunities for disadvantaged pupils to learn about the world of work in a way that their more advantaged peers may be able to access through their independent schooling or friend and family networks. This paper sets out these benefits in further detail and explores how statutory status for PSHE education could help to realise the huge potential of the subject to deliver the following positive outcomes for the most disadvantaged pupils:

  • Boosting academic success
  • Building character and key skills for life and work
  • Supporting employability
  • Removing barriers to learning
