Why do we study P.S.H.E.?

P.S.H.E. education gives you the knowledge, skills, and attributes you need to keep healthy and safe and to prepare you for life and work in modern Britain.

P.S.H.E. education helps you to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes you need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. From making responsible decisions about alcohol to succeeding in your first job, P.S.H.E. education helps you to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities you will face growing up.


Links to Emotional Health and Wellbeing

 As a school we promote mental wellbeing. This is because a child’s emotional health and wellbeing influences their cognitive development and learning, as well as their physical and social health and their mental wellbeing in adulthood. Above all, we want our pupils to be happy, confident young adults who are able to adapt to adulthood in a positive way. P.S.H.E. is a huge part of this process.

We use P.S.H.E. teaching and learning to promote resilience and support social and emotional learning.

Through P.S.H.E. we study and exemplify these values. You will see where.


Links to British Values

Democracy (people have a voice eg. voting)

Individual liberty (freedom to be yourself, enjoy your culture and heritage and express yourself)

The rule of law

Mutual respect and tolerance (no prejudice or discrimination)


Through P.S.H.E. we study and exemplify these values. You will see where.
