Personal, Social, Health and Economic education

PSHE is at the core of the school and pervades everything in school. PSHE needs to provide our pupils with the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to be able to function in society as responsible citizens.

This area of learning is about emotional well-being, knowing who you are, and where you fit in and feeling good about yourself. It is also about developing respect for others and social competence.

Many outside agencies are used as part of the PSHE programme e.g. school nurse, Police, Safe at Last. Y11 are also involved in the baby doll project and are given the opportunity to take home the baby doll for the weekend.

PSHE and Citizenship days have led to a wide variety of agencies being in school on many different topics. Parents are also invited to these days as well as certain PSHE lessons where it is important that the information given can be discussed at home.

We have also successfully achieved Healthy School status. Apart from Healthy Eating the school places emphasis on the social, cultural, spiritual and moral welfare of everyone in school.
