Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. It helps children and young people to stay healthy and safe, while preparing them to make the most of life and work. From September 2020 nearly the entirety of the PSHE curriculum becomes statutory under the Children and Social Work Act 2017. This includes Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) at key stages 3 and 4, and Health Education in both secondary phases.
Our course content follows three key themes:
Health and wellbeing
Living in the wider world
PSHE lessons are delivered fortnightly by form tutors. We also regularly welcome outside professionals to deliver key aspects of the programme.
We work hard to develop informative and interesting lessons which will provide the students with the skills which will enable them to be fully prepared for their life beyond school. Programmes of study and lesson plans are regularly updated to focus on the key content and skills that students encounter as they move from Year 7 to Year 11.
Our lessons are based on the PSHE Association's curriculum guidance and incorporate a wide range of learning and teaching strategies.
