At Saltdean Primary we recognise and value the importance of PSHE education. Our PSHE curriculum equips children with the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need to be resilient learners and to lead safe, confident, happy, healthy, responsible and independent lives. The knowledge, skills and understanding that are taught through discrete PSHE sessions are also covered through cross-curricular links and are embedded in all that we do at Saltdean Primary. At Saltdean Primary school, we are proud to be meeting the new DfE guidance for Relationships, Health and Sex Education (2019) and contributing to the Equalities Act duties on schools, through our PSHE curriculum. You can read our PSHE policy (incorporating statutory Relationships Education, Sex Education and Health Education) here

The programme of study for PSHE education includes topics such as: bullying, citizenship, cultural diversity, drug and alcohol education, healthy eating, physical activity, social and emotional health, wellbeing, sex and relationships, careers education, economic education and financial capability. You can find more detail about which topics are taught when in our curriculum map.  

Miss Otter and Miss Venturi ran a consultation workshop about the PSHE curriculum for all parents and carers during Spring Term 2020. Please click here if you'd like to view the presentation.


Safety Net is a Brighton and Hove charity that works with young people and schools. Their vision is to build communities where children, young people and adults know they have the right to feel safe and understand their responsibility to keep others safe.

Safety Net worked with Y6 during the Summer term 2019 with their workshops on 'Wise Up to Worries'. 51% of the 600 children they spoke to across Brighton and Hove said their top worry was the environment. To respond to this, they have produced an information sheet to help parents/carers talk to their children about their worries/concerns. Click here to read.
