The impact of the first ten years of the National Curriculum in England and Wales upon personal-social education (PSE) is analysed. It is proposed that many indirect processes have led to PSE having a lesser place in schools. The analysis offers some broad pointers for improvement. A conception of improved PSE for 21st-century schools is identified.
