PSHE

In PSHE we aim to provide pupils with the knowledge and skills to help them to make healthy and informed choices.

We aim to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Pupils will develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team working and critical thinking in the context of learning grouped into three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education).

Pupils are encouraged to ask questions in a safe and stimulating classroom environment. Learning activities include discussion, group work, role play and games.

We draw on the expertise of visitors from external agencies throughout Key Stages 3 and 4.
