PSHE Assemblies

Are you a Head of Year running a PSHE Programme?

Do you present PSHE Assemblies?

In the absence of a national programme of study from the DfE, the PSHE Association, in consultation with a wide variety of agencies and practitioners, has produced its own programme of study based on the needs of today’s pupils and schools.
Many of the concepts in this document, make excellent topics for School Assembly.

PSHE Background

Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education has in various forms been part of the National Curriculum for schools in UK since 2000. Some aspects, but not all, have been compulsory. PSHE education is defined by the schools inspectorate Ofsted as a planned programme to help children and young people develop fully as individuals and as members of families and social and economic communities. Its goal is to equip young people with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthily, safely, productively and responsibly.

In Wales, the comparable element of the state school curriculum topic is Personal and Social Education (PSE). In Ireland, it is Social, Personal and Health education (SPHE). It is also known as PSHEE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education), PSED (Personal, Social and Emotional Development) and PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education).
