The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has  expressed disappointment at the news that Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education will not be introduced to the national curriculum.

Education minister Elizabeth Truss confirmed that an internal review by the Department of Education determined that the status quo should be maintained, meaning that PSHE would not be statutory in schools.

Jenny McWhirter, RoSPA’s risk education adviser, said: "The ministerial statement puts an end to uncertainty about the government’s commitment to PSHE education.

"RoSPA is disappointed that PSHE will not become statutory as it is an entitlement of all children and young people to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to keep themselves safe. "

Ms McWhirter went on to say that she believes safety education will be disconnected from pupils' real life experiences if it is not supported by PSHE education as part of one single approach.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801562413-ADNFCR
