Personal, Social and Health Education

Personal, Social and Health Education is delivered on a carousel basis alongside Religious Education. 

PSHE education acknowledges and addresses the changes that students are experiencing, beginning with transition to secondary school, the challenges of adolescence and their increasing independence. It teaches the skills which will equip them for the opportunities and challenges of life. Students are encouraged to manage diverse relationships and the increasing influence of peers and the media. PSHE education allows them to be more confident in addressing the challenges of effective learning and making a full and active contribution to society.

In Years 7 and 9, students are taught about the negative effects of risk taking behaviour with regard to: Drugs and Alcohol and Sex and Relationships.  

Additionally, students in Year 8 will learn about E-safety & Prevent, the government strategy about safeguarding people and communities from the threat of terrorism.

In Year 10, students are taught about Money Management to extend their financial knowledge and understanding so that they are able to make better informed and rational decisions about their own financial needs in the future.  Additionally, students will learn about how to build resilience and emotional health.
