PSHCE Curriculum

PSHCE education is a planned, developmental programme of learning which enables our young people to acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future. 

As part of a whole-school approach, PSHCE education develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. PSHCE education equips pupils to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives. It encourages them to be enterprising and supports them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in achieving economic wellbeing. A critical component of PSHCE education is providing opportunities for children and young people to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future. 

Our Programme of Study for PSHE education follows the PSHCE Association programme of study which is delivered by teachers during Form Period. This programme of study has cross curricular links to SRE, CEIAG, SMSC, British Values and the Prevent agenda.  The curriculum is based on three core themes within which there is broad overlap and flexibility: 

  • Core theme 1. Health and Wellbeing 
  • Core theme 2. Relationships 
  • Core theme 3. Living in the Wider World
