Supporting PSHE education leads and teachers working with pupils with special educational needs and disability (SEND) is a key part of our work. We are therefore delighted to launch this fully updated version of the PSHE Association Planning Framework for Pupils with SEND. It will support those of you working with SEND pupils in both special and mainstream settings.

All schools are required to teach the majority of PSHE education from September 2020. This includes Relationships Education at key stages 1 and 2, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) at key stages 3 and 4, and Health Education in both primary and secondary phases.

We published this latest version of our Framework in July 2020 and it accompanies the 2020 edition of the PSHE Association Programme of Study for PSHE education. It is also fully aligned with the Statutory Guidance for Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education from the Department for Education (DfE). We have mapped the content grids from this statutory guidance to the Planning Framework, and adapted learning outcomes appropriately in cases where statutory content may not be accessible for pupils with SEND.

This Framework also supports schools to provide a comprehensive PSHE programme that integrates, but is not limited to, this new statutory content. ‘The World I Live In’ section covers aspects of PSHE relating to careers education, economic wellbeing, personal safety (including assessing and managing risk) and preparing for adulthood. Though not yet a statutory part of PSHE education, this learning is critical to support different levels of independence that pupils with SEND may have.

The Framework covers all of this while supporting you to plan, assess, monitor and evidence progress and achievement in your pupils’ PSHE education.

The Planning Framework is free to download and printed copies will be available for members to purchase once we resume our delivery service. Register your interest here.

Also see our SEND Hub, to which we will will be adding case studies, a webinar, and all other SEND-related materials.
