PSHE Personal, social and Health education is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Our lessons aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, teamworking and critical thinking in the context of learning.
PSHE is grouped into three main themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education).
PSHE education helps pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage many of the critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face as they grow up and in adulthood.
By teaching pupils to stay safe and healthy, and by building self-esteem, resilience and empathy, we can help tackle barriers to learning, raise aspirations, and improve the life chances of our pupils.
