What Does PSHE Stand For? and What Is Taught in PSHE?

PSHE meaning and PSHE topics

PSHE stands for Personal, Social, Health, and Economic education. Some PSHE topics include relationship and sex, health and wellbeing, drugs and alcohol, financial education, the importance of physical education and diet and other topics. You can find current curriculum on the Government website.

PSHE is an important and necessary part of your children’s education and should be part of your child’s learning curriculum. Primary, secondary, or even home-schooled students should be taught about PHSE topics as they are key life skills that can help them through life.

PSHE, meaning Personal, Social, Health, and Economic education, can be and should be tailored to the student’s specific needs. This is a great idea for students who are struggling with real-life PSHE situations such as diet or relationships.

Why Should You Learn PSHE Topics?

There is a growing amount of research that shows that pupils who are more emotionally healthy do better in school. Learning PSHE topics allow the child to reach their full potential concerning wellbeing and being able to tackle personal issues that could affect their ability to learn. PSHE Learning could enable the child to overcome some tough problems such as anxiety and unhealthy relationships.
