PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education)

This area of the curriculum incorporates relationships and sex education, drugs and alcohol education, and anti-bullying work.  We are well supported by the team at the Brighton and Hove Local Authority, and access regular training and support on this important area of the curriculum.  At Downs Infant School we are proud to be meeting the new DfE guidance for Relationships, Health and Sex Education (2019) and contributing to the Equalities Act duties on schools, through our PSHE curriculum.
