PSHE is non statutory but the framework document says
‘All schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice.’
‘Schools should seek to use PSHE education to build, where appropriate, on the statutory content already outlined in the national curriculum, the basic school curriculum and in statutory guidance on: drug education, financial education, sex and relationship education (SRE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.’
Have a look at the PSHE Association’s website to get detailed information.
