What is PSHE?

At Holly Grove, we follow the MyLife Scheme by Colins. The purpose of the PSHE curriculum is to provide all pupils with opportunities to:

  • Develop confidence and responsibility and make the most of their abilities
  • Prepare to play an active role as citizens through developing skills for living and valuing themselves and respecting others
  • Develop a healthy lifestyle
  • Contribute to their community and the wider world and becoming morally and socially responsible
  • Develop good relationships and respect the differences between people

What our children say about PSHE at Holly Grove:  


Our PSHE curriculum aims to develop children's life long learning skills, ensuring they build awareness, understanding and knowledge as they become citizens of the future. Please click here to see our PSHE intent.

Our Curriculum

To ensure children are taught and remember the appropriate knowledge and skills relating to PSHRE, we have created a whole school progressive breakdown of the National Curriculum expectations, this draws on the skills and knowledge being taught across all subject areas and hopes to contribute to the development of key concepts and themes in a deep and connected way.
