PSHE

Personal Social Health and Economic (PSHE) education covers a wide range of topics and the thought processes and exploration of ideas that is encouraged with pupils, has a far-reaching impact on all aspects of their academic, pastoral and personal growth as they progress through the school.  Happy, healthy, well-balanced pupils with positive self-esteem and supportive peer relationships do achieve better both socially and academically.  All pupils in Years L7-M11 have a single lesson of PSHE each week.  

PSHE includes aspects of ‘Citizenship’ and Sex and Relationship Education (SRE).  It prepares pupils to be personally and socially effective by providing opportunities in which they can develop and apply skills, explore personal attitudes and values, develop a sense of personal and community responsibility, celebrate diversity, develop a healthy lifestyle, promote lifelong learning and to prepare for the challenges, choices and responsibilities of work and adult life
