Lowerhouse Junior School

Inspiring a lifelong love for learning


PSHE and SRE Statement of Intent


At Lowerhouse Junior School, Personal, Social, Health and Education (PSHE) is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.


PSHE is taught across the school from Year 3- Year 6 on a weekly basis. As a school, we follow the DotCom scheme as well as some added topics which are personalised for our children. Our PSHE curriculum equips children with relevant and meaningful content, which is supported through a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health. As a result of this, our children will become healthy, independent and responsible members of society.


Interwoven throughout the PSHE teaching are our core values: Aspiration, Integrity, Resilience and Respect. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
