The National Curriculum states that ‘all schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice' and it is now a compulsory part of pupils' learning. At Gateway we use a PSHE Programme - 3D PSHE - in which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes needed in order to keep themselves healthy and safe whilst preparing them for life and work.

There are three underlying core themes taught throughout Dimensions 3D PSHE, within which there is broad overlap and flexibility :-

1. Health and Wellbeing

2. Relationships

3. Living in the Wider World

Pupils are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of activities, enabling them to make significant contributions to both life in school and within the wider community. This allows them to become aware of their skills and talents, develop their self-worth, learn to work as part of a team and take greater responsibility for their own learning. 

Relationship and Sex Education (RSE)

The focus of 3D PSHE in primary school is on teaching the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships, with particular reference to friendships, family relationships and relationships with other children and adults. 

Our Sex education complements the National Curriculum for science which includes subject content in related areas. We use the 3D Sex Education Unit. This is tailored to the age and the physical and emotional maturity of our pupils and supports pupils’ ongoing emotional and physical development effectively.
