Social, Personal and Health Education

The Social Personal and Health Education Curriculum (SPHE) is for children from junior infants to sixth class.

The SPHE curriculum…

  • fosters children’s well-being, self-confidence and sense of belonging
  • develops children’s sense of personal responsibility for their own behaviour and actions
  • promotes children’s self-awareness and understanding by helping them to manage their own feelings, to recognise and appreciate individual abilities, and to cope with change of various kinds
  • supports children to become active and responsible citizens.
