In PSHE we aim to promote the highest standards of personal and interpersonal behaviour and contribute to offering the widest breadth of challenge and opportunity in a happy and caring environment. PSHE does not merely support the academic curriculum but has its own educative purpose supported by its own detailed schemes of work.
- to help pupils to lead confident, healthy and responsible lives as individuals and members of society
- to empower pupils with the basic skills, experiences, knowledge and attitudes that are required to help them live healthily and deal with the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues they face as they approach adulthood. The pupils should be prepared to be active, confident and responsible members of society
- to provide opportunities to reflect on their experiences and how they are developing in order to help pupils manage responsibly a wider range of relationships
- to help develop pupils' well-being and self-esteem, encouraging belief in their ability to succeed and enabling them to take responsibility for their learning and future career choices
The PSHE scheme of work is one that introduces topics to the pupils at the appropriate time and is a spiral/progressive system that allows, as much as possible, specific concepts to be revisited.
During the 2020-2021 academic year, Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) and Health and Wellbeing will be made a statutory requirement.
Key Stage 3
During Key Stage 3, pupils learn about themselves as growing and changing individuals and as members of their communities with more maturity, independence and power.
Key Stage 4
During Key Stage 4, pupils use the knowledge, skills and understanding that they have gained in earlier Key stages, and their own experience, to take new and more adult roles in the school and the wider community.
