Why does PSHE matter?
According to the PSHE Association, PSHE education gives students the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.
Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which students develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.
These skills and attributes help students to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. When taught well, PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.
Our landmark ‘curriculum for life’ report outlines evidence of the subject’s impact.
