PSHE education and safeguarding
  • Teaching about safety and relationships as part of PSHE education contributes to how schools approach the safeguarding of pupils. It helps them to recognise when they and others are at risk and equips them with the skills, strategies and language they need to take appropriate action. This is crucial to fulfilling statutory duties in relation to safeguarding pupils.
  • Ofsted expressed concern in its 2013 PSHE report that lack of high-quality, age-appropriate SRE in over a third of schools left young people vulnerable to inappropriate sexual behaviours and exploitation. It is clear, therefore, the PSHE education plays a vital part in helping to meet school’s responsibilities to safeguard their pupils.

PSHE education is a non-statutory subject. However, in order to fulfil its duties relating to SMSC, behaviour and safety, and to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which meets pupils’ needs and prepares them for the challenges and opportunities of adult life, a school’s best approach is to ensure that a comprehensive programme of PSHE education is in place. 

The benefits to pupils of such an approach are numerous as PSHE prepares them to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up. It also helps them to connect and apply the knowledge and understanding they learn in all subjects to practical, real-life situations while helping them to feel safe and secure enough to fulfil their academic potential.
