During the course of an academic year, Life skills will be taught via 4 drop down days where students have the opportunity to spend a full day exploring lots of different topics and themes. Days could also include workshops, performances and lectures from outside agencies. Core themes studied include: Health and well-being, Relationships and Living in the Wider World.
PSHE (Personal, Social, Health, Economic) education is a planned, developmental programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future.
PSHE education develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and member of society.
Our new PSHE programme of study makes a significant contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development.
Citizenship education helps to provide pupils with knowledge, skills and understanding to prepare them to play a full and active part in society. In particular, citizenship education should foster pupils’ keen awareness and understanding of democracy, government and how laws are made and upheld. Citizenship is taught across the curriculum but can also be developed along side the PSHE curriculum.
