King Edward Primary School and Nursery Excitement + Determination = Success

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

A prime area of our curriculum is Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED).


This area includes:

  • Self-regulation
  • Managing self
  • Building Relationships
  • Basic hygiene & needs


The aim of this area focuses on children learning how to work, play, co-operative with others and function in a group beyond the family. At King Edward, we support this through learning and play by building on children's confidence, knowledge and behaviours.


We also provide input on SEAL/PSHE to broaden children's understanding of feelings.

The areas we cover through our PSHE curriculum are:

  • New beginnings
  • Good to be me
  • Getting on and falling out
  • Circle of love
  • Good to be me
  • Changes
