PSHE Association programme of study for PSHE education (Key Stages 1–4)

PSHE education programme of study (KS 1-4)

The Government’s PSHE education review concluded in March 2013, stating that the subject would remain non-statutory and that no new programmes of study would be published. The DfE has however stated as part of its national curriculum framework that ‘All schools should make provision for PSHE education, drawing on good practice’. 

In the absence of a national programme of study from the DfE, the PSHE Association, in consultation with a wide variety of agencies and practitioners, has produced its own programme of study based on the needs of today’s pupils and schools. Our programme of study identifies the key concepts and skills that underpin PSHE education and help schools to fulfil their statutory responsibility to support pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.

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 support and CPD available through Association membership.
