It is laid out in a two year programme to allow for a wider and deeper coverage of PSHE education and citizenship and is divided into 12 half-termly topics, six in year A and six in year B. The focus in year A is mainly on personal and interpersonal relationships and health issues. This is widened out in year B to include social and economic relationships, including international relationships.
The range of topics ensure a comprehensive coverage of most PSHE education and citizenship issues which would include community and participation, safety (including e-safety), health education (including sex and relationship and drugs education), difference and diversity, personal relationships, the environment, financial capability, globalisation, social injustice, growth and change.
The colour-coded curriculum overview shows the balance of PSHE education, citizenship and SEAL over the two years.

In December 2006 the Ealing Healthy Schools team launched the Ealing PSHE scheme of work (SoW). It was devised to support schools in Ealing to deliver quality PSHE to children and young people. This is still available for high schools and nursery/reception settings who can use it as their SoW in its entirety, or they can use parts of it within their already established PSHE curriculum.
The scheme of work - September 2008 version (pdf) is intended to be a living document that changes and develops as the needs of the students change. It contains a repertoire of useful ideas to inspire the development of innovative approaches to deliver PSHE within schools.
