Education, Curriculum & Frameworks
At Generation Be we’ve got the National Curriculum Framework covered. Here you will find what areas and objectives giving you peace of mind that we are all working towards the same goals.
Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education
All schools should teach PSHE, drawing on good practice, and this expectation is outlined in the introduction to the proposed new national curriculum. PSHE is a non-statutory subject. However, while we believe that it is for schools to tailor their local PSHE programme to reflect the needs of their pupils, we expect schools to use their PSHE education programme to equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.
Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) is an important part of PSHE Education and is statutory in maintained secondary schools.
