What is PSHE Education?

“PSHE education is a school 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.”
“Evidence shows that well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.”
PSHE Association

PSHE education is a planned program of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives. As part of a whole school approach, PSHE develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. The program is divided into three modules of study – 

  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Sex and Relationships
  • British Values and budgeting

All year 7 to 11 students have dedicated PSHE lessons, tailored to equip them with the life skills needed to be happy and successful members of the community. Below is a link to the full PSHE programme for this academic year along with a guide for parents. PSHE is not only limited to specialist lessons but can be taught across a range of different subjects, as well as trips, year group assemblies and through specialist speakers to address more sensitive issues.
