Mapping the PSHE Programme of Study to New Statutory Guidance on Health Education and RSE

The PSHE Association are delighted to publish an updated version of ‘We’ve got it covered’ for you today to reflect the new statutory guidance for health education, relationships education and RSE. These aspects of PSHE education will be compulsory from 2020 and the government published its new guidance recently, following consultation on a draft version last year.

We’ve got it covered’ is a handy, free guide which maps The PSHE Association’s PSHE education Programme of Study to the new statutory guidance. You will see from this guide that any school using their current PSHE education Programme of Study (Key stages 1–5) to plan high quality, regular PSHE is set up to cover the new statutory requirements, while also delivering vital economic wellbeing and careers aspects.

They are also making a few updates and improvements to the Programme of Study itself later this year – including added detail on what the new guidance means in each key stage, within the context of your broader PSHE programme. In the meantime, the current version certainly has you covered.

‘Giving to Help Others’ KS2 resources

Giving to Help Others’, founded by The Team Margot Foundation and NHS Blood and Transplant, have created a new PSHE lesson to help spread the word about the power of blood, stem cell and bone marrow donation, and to raise the number of adult donors both now and in the future.

This free resource includes:

  • PowerPoint lessons,
  • videos,
  • comprehensive teacher notes
  • and activities.

It will help your Key Stage 2 pupils identify ways that they can help others, whilst further exploring why adults choose to donate blood, stem cells and bone marrow.

This resource has just been granted the PSHE Association Quality Mark, and includes an optional extension activity for pupils to create a donation awareness campaign within their local community, to inspire others to get involved.

Alcohol Education Updates

NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) has updated the guidelines on alcohol education in schools.  New draft recommendations will support the Department for Education’s (DfE) plan to make alcohol education a compulsory component of personal, social and health education (PSHE) in all state-funded schools in England from September 2020.

The guideline, developed with Public Health England, advises a positive approach to alcohol education; inviting classroom discussion and wider school policies to embed a ‘whole-school approach’ to PSHE.
