Year 3 PSHE

PSHE is a non-statutory subject. At Gayton, we tailor our PSHE programme to reflect the needs of our pupils: the programme aims to equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk and the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions. The programme incorporates the DfE non-compulsory Citizenship programme of study and also the Relationships and Health Education framework that was made compulsory in 2021.


By the end of Year 3, children should be able to:

  • Recognise their own likes/dislikes, traits and individual preferences
  • Recognise other people’s likes/dislikes, traits and preferences
  • Demonstrate that they can work in a pair and a small group
  • Demonstrate active listening skills
  • Speak in front of others
  • Demonstrate compassion, empathy and tolerance
  • Demonstrate speaking and listening skills
  • Understand the skill and can put it into practice
  • Know that it is OK to make mistakes
  • Say ‘no’ and mean it
  • Demonstrate that they know the process for decision making
  • Understand that they have choices
  • Identify points of choice
