Children have one lesson per week for PSHE although will naturally revisit many of the issues and topics from PSHE in other subjects during the week. Children are encouaged to discuss the issues and to share thoughts and ideas when they feel comfortable to do so.
The Nethersole follows the 'You, Me, PSHE' scheme provided by Islington Council. Each topic in incorporates activities to establish the starting point of children and assess progress. The topics included over a two year period (a two year teaching cycle) are:
Sex and relationship education (RSE) is taught annual to all children and is based on the 'All About Me' (Warwickshire) scheme inline with other Warwickshire schools. RSE is usually taught to children during the spring term.

Because the Nethersole teachings in mixed year classes, we follow a two year teaching cycle. Please refer to the long-term overview sheets on each key-stage phase page to see correct order and units to be delivered.
