Personal, Social, Health and Economic education is an extremely important subject for our pupils. Topics of study include: Managing Feelings, Healthy Bodies, Coping with Pressure, Cyberbullying, Social Skills, Economic Wellbeing, healthy relationships and Alcohol, Tobacco and Drug Awareness Challenges follow the statutory framework in PSHE. Themes within PSHE are introduced in the Lower School, and then they are revisited and developed at aged appropriate levels during Year 8 and 9. Pupils are encouraged to work independently, in pairs, and in small groups.The new RSE framework has been introduced ask mandatory from September 2020.
Also as part of PSHE and as a wider school context pupils are taught how to stay safe on the Internet. This is covered as part of PSHE in assemblies, in ICT/computing lessons and we also promote the UK Safer Internet Day. As part of the PSHE programme we also invite guest speakers to inform students of various parts of the subject.
