At St Stephen's, it is our intent to deliver a PSHE curriculum which is accessible to all and which will maximise the outcomes for every child so they know more, remember more and understand more. As a result of this, they will become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society who understand how they are developing personally and socially, and give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues which are part of growing up.

Growing and Changing Road Map for PSHE
Our Growing and Changing Units cover the DfE statutory RSHE requirements listed within the Changing Adolescent Body topic under statutory Health Education. As a school we deliver a spiral curriculum, content is introduced in the early years; for example, the difference between girls' and boys' bodies and the correct words for external body parts is covered before later content about how and why bodies change.
Lesson content grows in complexity and maturity, in line with children's development, supporting them every step of the way.
