The impact of PSHCE & RSE will be seen through our pupils who will be able to explain what they are personally focusing on to become better citizens in our school community and the world beyond.

Children will:

  • Demonstrate and apply the British Values of democracy, tolerance, mutual respect as well as following rules and laws.

  • Demonstrate a healthy outlook towards school and behaviour will be good.

  • Become healthy and responsible members of society who demonstrate independence.

  • Know how to keep themselves safe, manage risk and have an age appropriate understanding of themselves and others.

  • Be able to make informed decisions.

  • Will be on their journey preparing them for life and work in modern Britain.

  • Recognise the importance of their own mental health and well-being;

  • Develop good relationships and respect the differences between members of the school and the wider community.


By teaching pupils to stay safe and healthy, and by building self-esteem, resilience and empathy, an effective PSHCE & RSE programme can tackle barriers to learning, raise aspirations, and improve the life chances of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged pupils. The skills and attributes developed through PSHCE & RSE education are also shown to increase academic attainment and attendance rates, particularly among pupils eligible for free school meals, as well as improve employability and boost social mobility. By the time they leave Ladywood we aim to enable our learners to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. They will understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
