PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) is taught by a small and highly committed team of teachers. The focus is on evaluating attitudes, examining values, developing skills and understanding the views of others.
Teaching styles are highly interactive, sometimes practical, predominantly group based and reflect on our commitment to enable all students to participate equally within a safe, supportive., challenging and fun environment.
Students have one lesson per week in Year 7, 8 and 9. In Year 10 students have 5 drop down days, and in Year 11 students have two drop down days.
The course is divided into units which are:
- Enterprise and Work Related Learning
- Sex and Relationships Education
- Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco Education
- Citizenship – family, disability, British values, democracy, equal opportunities, human rights and sexuality
- Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health
- Healthy Lifestyles
- Economic Wellbeing and Financial Capability
These units encompass a broad range of subject matter and skill development. Not all units are taught in every year.
