Mrs Lowe is responsible for the PSHE and HRE curriculum in our school.



Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they

need to manage their lives, now and in the future. It helps children and young people to stay healthy and safe, while preparing them to make the most

of life and work.

Most of PSHE education becomes statutory for all schools from September 2020 under the Children and Social Work Act 2017. This includes

Human Relationships Education at key stages 1 and 2 (HRE)


At the Cathedral Primary School PSHE is taught in three strands

CORE THEME 1: HEALTH AND WELLBEING – including work on healthy lifestyles, mental wellbeing, growing and changing and keeping safe.


CORE THEME 2: RELATIONSHIPS - including Statutory HRE taught through schemes approved by Lancashire Diocese called ‘A Journey in Love’ for Yrs R-5 and ‘This is my Body’ for Y6, friendship, families and positive relationships, respect for self and others and bullying.


CORE THEME 3: LIVING IN THE WIDER WORLD – including work on shared responsibilities, communities, digital resilience, economic wellbeing, aspirations for work and careers.
