Gawber Primary School follows the ‘1 Decision’ Scheme of Work for PSHE in Key Stage 1 and 2. The core of the programme is a series of videos with alternative endings together with engaging activities. The purpose of videos is to encourage and empower children to make positive choices and decisions for the characters, whilst learning the vocabulary, skills, and knowledge to support their own decision making now and in the future.


The ‘1 Decision’ Scheme of Work is based around 3 Core Themes: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Winder World. These Core Themes are broken down into smaller units of work. These include:

  • Keeping/Staying Safe
  • Keeping/Staying Healthy
  • Relationships
  • Growing and Changing
  • Being Responsible
  • Feelings and Emotions
  • Computer Safety
  • Our World
  • The Working World
  • Hazard Watch
  • A World Without Judgement
  • Fire Safety
  • First Aid.


Within the units of work children will cover a range of topics and support the characters to make responsible choices. Some topics that are included:

  • Families and people who care for me
  • Caring friendships
  • Respectful relationships
  • Online relationships
  • Being safe
  • Puberty
  • Conception
  • Mental wellbeing
  • Internet safety and harms
  • Physical health and fitness
  • Physical health and mental wellbeing
  • Healthy eating
  • Drugs, alcohol, and tobacco
  • Health and prevention
  • Basic first aid
  • Changing adolescent body


Due to the sensitive nature of some topics (e.g Changing adolescent body, Puberty, Conception) letters will be sent home inviting parents in to watch the videos before it is taught. When requested, video can also be made available to watch online for any parents who are unable to make the meeting.
