Wiltshire teachers achieve the national PSHE qualification

Thursday 14th November 2019

For the last two years staff from Wiltshire primary and secondary schools, as well as a candidate from Wiltshire Police, have been studying as part of the National PSHE CPD Programme.

The national programme has been developed by subject experts and is based upon effective practice and subject pedagogy as highlighted by the DfE, OFSTED, Healthy Schools and related literature and research. It is offered and accredited by the University of Roehampton and was delivered in Wiltshire by Nick Bolton from Wiltshire Council.  

This week the final results have been released, with all Wiltshire candidates who submitted work achieving a pass.

Staff from the following schools have a member of staff that has achieved the national PSHE qualification:

  • Bowerhill Primary School
  • Box Primary School
  • Devizes School
  • Fitzmaurice Primary School
  • Lavington School
  • Minety CofE Primary School
  • Monkton Park Primary School
  • Noremarsh Primary School
  • Pembroke Park Primary School
  • Preshute Primary School
  • Sarum St Pauls CofE VA Primary School
  • Sheldon School
  • South Wilts Grammar School
  • Wyndham Park Infants' School

 + a candidate from Wiltshire Police.


"This course has afforded me time and space to explore PSHE in breadth and depth; it has provided an engaging platform for valuable reflection and analysis both of my PSHE teaching practice and my subject leadership.

I have a newfound confidence and sense of enjoyment of this crucial subject, and feel in an emboldened position to offer support and expertise across PSHE."

Through involvement in the programme, participants have improved their confidence and competence in the delivery of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education to raise the quality of teaching and learning. This will help schools as they prepare to deliver the new statutory aspects of Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education from September 2020.
