A Whole School Approach

Aims

 

Physical, Social, Health, and Economic Education (PSHEE) provides opportunities for students to develop skills such as perseverance, resilience, conflict resolution, emotional intelligence, self-management, team work, locus of control, time and stress management.

 

Research shows that students with greater emotional, behavioural, social, and school well-being had higher attainment and were more engaged (Gutman & Vorhaus, 2012).

 

PSHEE will be partly taught through five enrichment days over the year, each addressing various areas of the PSHE curriculum, SMSC, British Values and human rights. Three main three main themes will be explored: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world.

The PSHE curriculum is not taught in vacuum, instead whole school assemblies and form time activities introduce ideas and follow up on topics covered in our enrichment days. In addition, the themes are embedded across the curriculum wherever it is relevant to promote the characters and values as well as skills acquired within the classroom. 

Our behaviour policy and management reflect the practice of taught virtues, how students must respect each others’ rights and be empowered to demand their own rights. Staff encourage students to apply taught principles and ideas in their everyday life, whether in school or outside, including charitable activities, conflict resolution between peers, managing expectations, planning and target setting for their future and their role in the wider community.

Delivery of our PSHE curriculum

The enrichment days will be planned on a 5 year cycle, to ensure students cover all aspects of the curriculum without repetition, but with a great deal of review and overlap.
