Our PSHE provision develops the knowledge, skills and attributes our pupils need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work.
We make every effort for our PSHE curriculum to have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
Our Programme of Study for PSHE education aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, teamworking and critical thinking in the context of three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education).
