Brierley Forest

Primary and Nursery School




From September 2020 a new curriculum for PSHE and RSE became statutory.

See document below for a parent guide to this.


As well as using some of existing PSHE and Citizenship Programme to tie in with class projects, to comply with as a school we are going to be following a whole new scheme in KS1 and KS2.


"Talking Points"



Our school is using the Talking Points schemes of work to deliver the government guidance on Health and Relationships education. It uses picture books as a starting point to get children talking about their own health and mental wellbeing as well as addressing other issues such as managing money and understanding democracy. Its aim is to develop children’s understanding of themselves, their emotions and how to deal with others. It also teaches children how to stay safe in many situations and who to speak to if they are ever worried or concerned.


See below for information for each year group.

Stories are subject to change if correct books cannot be sourced.




In Early Years PSHE will continue to be taught in the same way through provision and focus times.

The content is formed from two main areas of Development Matters: Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Health and Self-Care.
