PSHE Leader Curriculum Support

The new Ofsted Inspection Framework marks a significant shift in focus, shining a much brighter light on non-Core subjects. It also has an increased emphasis on personal development, behaviour, character traits, and attitudes to learning. Furthermore, much of the subject has now become statutory. All of this puts PSHE at the heart of school development. This three-part on-demand series covers everything a PSHE coordinator should know.

  • Summarise Ofsted’s new requirements and explain how they affect PSHE
  • Guide you through the ‘Three Is’ - Intent Implementation and Impact - so you can reflect on your curriculum design
  • Provide dozens of practical and powerful approaches to raise standards in PSHE

About this INSET

2019 marked a big shift in Ofsted focus: not ‘away from’ English and Maths, but certainly to shine a stronger light on foundation subjects. Ofsted have also increased their emphasis on personal development, behaviour, character traits, and attitudes to learning. Coupled with the newly statutory requirements for RSHE (relationships education and health education), PSHE is now at the very heart of Ofsted’s approach.

This three-part on-demand series guides PSHE leaders through the new Framework, and provides them with dozens of practical ideas.

Part 1 sets out the expectations, inspection guidance, and overarching views of excellent curriculum design. It will cover:

  • OFSTED’s view of curriculum quality;
  • How to articulate your vision and values;
  • How to make your PSHE curriculum pupil-focused and school-centric;
  • Ways to raise the profile of PSHE, and standards within it.

Part 2 looks at how you might implement your vision for PSHE. It will cover:

  • What it means to lead PSHE in the new Framework;
  • What to expect from a ‘Deep Dive’;
  • How to share and embed expectations;
  • Assessment and monitoring strategies that enhance pupil outcomes;
  • How to understand and embed cultural capital;
  • How to establish equality of accessibility.

Part 3 looks at ways to judge the impact of your school’s PSHE curriculum. It will cover:
