PSHE Association - PSHE statutory status
As you will know, the government announced their commitment to make PSHE statutory in October of last year. At the moment an independent review of the curriculum is being carried out by Sir Alasdair Macdonald, Head teacher from Morpeth School in London. There is more information about the review on our website at the link below, along with the questions being asked.
The review of current provision will be submitted to the DCSF by end of March 09 and then they will begin developing plans on how and when to implement any changes necessary to make the subject statutory so we are waiting for that before we have any more information. It is not thought there will be many changes to the current PSHE Programmes of Study as they themselves are quite new and have been recently reviewed.
Further details can be found on the PSHE website
