PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education)

To navigate our ever-changing world successfully and safely, students require the skills and knowledge necessary to flourish and succeed in their personal and academic lives both now and in the future. This is where PSHE is vital.

PSHE education equips students with the knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies required to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives. It encourages them to be enterprising and supports them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in achieving economic well-being.

A critical component of PSHE education is providing opportunities for students to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future.

The PSHE curriculum is split into 3 main themes:

  • health and well-being
  • relationships (including sex education)
  • living in the wider world.

The PSHE curriculum is taught through a spiral programme, revisiting the three themes each year with increasing challenge, broadening the scope and deepening students’ thinking.
