Epsom Downs Primary School & Children's Cnetre


Personal, Health and Social Education underpins life at Epsom Downs Primary School. Our school is a values-based school that believes in developing a set of skills and attitudes that prepare our children for the modern-day world. Children’s attitudes to themselves and each other must be healthy if they are to be safe, happy learners. The emphasis is on encouraging individual responsibility, awareness and informed decision making, which is based around our seven school values of resilience, empathy, self-awareness, positivity, excellence, communication and teamwork. Our school PSHE Curriculum aims to provide opportunities for all pupils to learn and achieve. It promotes pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and prepares children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.

Our curriculum also fully covers the statutory aspects of the Relationships Education and Health Education in the Department for Education’s Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education Statutory guidance

Our PSHE Curriculum links to our whole school curriculum intent, since it is: 

Engaging – children learn through child-centred, engaging themes.

Enriching because the thematic content enriches children’s lives; empowering them to have a progressively better understanding of the health and well-being, their relationships and how to live well in the wider world

Values-Centred because our Epsom Downs values - Respect, Resilience, Empathy, Self-Awareness, Positivity, Excellence, Communication and Teamwork - and British values, underpin all that we teach in PSHE.

Unique because our Enrichment programme builds above and beyond statutory learning; it deepens their knowledge and gives them a unique insight into how best to have a healthy body and healthy mind.
