  15. Creating a PSHE education policy for your school

    This paper will help you write your school’s PSHE education policy. The best policies are produced collaboratively by the people who will be affected by them and should be consulted on widely. This consultation should include pupils themselves where appropriate. The completed policy will serve a number of purposes: - To people unfamiliar with the school, it publicly defines ‘what we believe and how we do things here’; - For people working in the school it offers a clear framework for teaching, protocols to follow, and a ‘tool’ that helps to shape decision-making.
