Personal, Social and Health Education underpins all we do in our Foundation Stage.  During their time in Nursery and Reception we are supporting the children all the time so they can become confident, resilient and responsible learners who enjoy positive relationships with their peers. 

Here are some of the reasons why PSHE is such an important part of what we do in Foundation Stage:

Personal, social and emotional development involves helping children to develop:

  • a positive sense of themselves, and others
  • to form positive relationships and develop respect for others
  • to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings
  • to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.


PSHE Education happens all the time in Nursery and Reception as we teach the children how to look after themselves, share, play together and resolve issues - like who had the toy first! However, we also have some key themes which we cover in our PSHE through circle time and small group activities.
