Personal, Health, Social and Economic education


Personal, Health, Social and Economic education (PHSE) is an important subject for all children as it seeks to explore issues that affect them and the wider community.  It aims to give children the knowledge and understanding they need to lead independent lives. Furthermore it enables children to explore social, moral and cultural issues, which helps to develop their understanding of the world around them. At Michael Drayton, we consider PHSE to be an important aspect of the curriculum. It is taught across all year groups, both interweaved through the curriculum and discretely in lessons.



All teaching is intended to be complementary and supportive of the role of parents. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from any aspect of sex and relationships education, which is not outlined in the National Curriculum. The school may ask for a reason for non-participation, although parents are not obliged to reply. Parents will be informed about the Jigsaw programme before the programme is due to start.
