PSHE at Tettenhall Wood School

At Tettenhall Wood School we believe that a strong PSHE education is important to help our pupils to develop the necessary skills to enable them to live safely in the world and be as independent as possible. Our PSHE curriculum is strongly tied to our online safety curriculum and our pastoral care programme.


Our intent, through this PSHE curriculum, is to support pupils to develop in to well-rounded members of society.  To enable them to live safely in the world and to be as independent as possible.


PSHE at Tettenhall Wood School is delivered in three different ways.

  1. Each pupil receives weekly discrete PSHE sessions that deliver the content of the PSHE framework through a wide range of activities. The length of these sessions depends on the needs and ability of the pupil. This may differ for pupils doing accreditations.

  2. Through everyday activities and learning opportunities such as sharing equipment at playtime, feeding themselves at snack time, making a snack, personal care routines, getting changed before and after PE etc.

  3. In their Personal Learning Planner, every pupil has tailored learning opportunities that take place across the curriculum to support them to make progress towards the outcomes in their EHCP. The outcomes for Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) and Physical, Medical and Sensory often relate to PSHE.


For pupils to be able to:

  • Develop resilience, confidence and independence.

  • Understand and regulate their emotions.

  • Carry out every day self-care tasks.

  • Understand how to keep themselves safe in a variety of situations.

  • Understand the world around them.

  • Keep themselves physically and emotionally healthy.

  • Develop body awareness.

  • Develop fundamental British Values to enable them to make a positive contribution to society.

  • Understand that not everyone is the same.

  • Develop and understand appropriate relationships.


As outlined in the ‘Children and Social Work Act’ 2017 and ‘Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education’ 2019 the new subjects of Relationship and Health Education (RHE) and Relationships Sex and Health Education are now Statutory.


At Tettenhall Wood School these subjects are taught through the PSHE curriculum and this has therefore, recently been updated.


Attached below are our PSHE framework, British Values document, Frequently Asked Questions and our updated PSHE and RSHE policy.
