Buxton Junior School



Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is essential to providing pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and become informed, active and responsible British citizens.

Here at Buxton Junior School we strive to help prepare pupils for their future by developing life skills such as resilience, confidence and build upon their self-esteem, helping children to recognise their own self-worth as well as develop empathy and the ability to work with others.

The PSHE curriculum enables children to understand and respect individual differences and diversity so that they can go on to achieve effective and fulfilling relationships. Safeguarding is an important element as children learn about their own identity, risks, decision making and how to keep themselves safe.

PSHE at Buxton Junior School is delivered through discrete lessons, assemblies, across other subjects, visits and visitors. Teachers at Buxton Junior School follow the PSHE Matters scheme. This introduces the children to the following 12 modules:

  • Drug Education (how to manage risk and peer influences)
  • Exploring Emotions (how to recognise and manage feelings)
  • Being Healthy (looking after our physical and mental health)
  • Growing Up (including Sex Education)
  • Changes (including loss)
  • Bullying Matters
  • Being Me (including identity and community)
  • Differences and Diversity (including challenging stereotypes)
  • Being Responsible (including looking after the environment)
  • Being Safe (including looking after the environment)
  • Relationships (including what makes a healthy relationship)
  • Money Matters (including enterprise)
