PSHE

 

PSHE, Personal Social and Health Education, is a crucial area of education in terms of personal development, safety, health, citizenship within the local and global community and general preparation for life.  These four days will be in addition to the valuable ongoing PSHE Tutor programme and will enable a more in depth focus on one aspect of the programme together with the opportunity to more fully utilise the skills of outside experts in their specific fields.  Experts in Sex and Relationships education, together with representatives from Healthy schools, charities, universities, businesses and the police will be continuing to work alongside Heads of Year and Form Tutors in the delivery of the PSHE programme with the aim of giving our pupils the very best preparation for life.

The key areas of focus across the year groups will be Sex and Relationships education, Healthy lifestyles, Citizenship, Careers education and Economic and Financial awareness. Some of the topics covered include Team Building, Friendship, Anti Bullying, E- Safety, Healthy Minds, Drugs and Alcohol Education, Community and Care and Red Cross – disasters and emergencies, Be the Boss and Money Sense (Please see reverse for an overview of the programme for your son/daughter’s year group.)

There are three off timetable days planned during the school year and an additional day in Enrichment Week in July when the whole school will be focusing on PSHE.
