Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education

Our PSHE curriculum builds on the knowledge and understanding, skills, attributes and values they have acquired and developed during the primary phase.

The curriculum acknowledges and addresses the changes that young people experience, the challenges of adolescence and their increasing independence.

It teaches the knowledge and skills that equip them for the opportunities and challenges of life. Students learn to manage diverse relationships, healthy lifestyles, their online lives and the increasing influence of peers and the media.

At Key Stage 4, students deepen their knowledge and understanding, and further explore attitudes and values. Students explore issues around peer pressure, drugs and mental health. At this stage, our students are moving towards an independent role in adult life, taking greater responsibility for themselves and others, which is reflected in the curriculum.
