Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) Education
Head of Department: Mrs T Allen - email@example.com
Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is taught at Key Stage 3 only.
While not an exam subject, PSHE is nevertheless an important and necessary part of all students’ education, enabling them to develop a sound understanding of the risks they may come across in life and providing them with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions. It includes guidance on subjects such as drug education, financial education, sex and relationships and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.
This subject also helps young people to develop the knowledge, skills and conviction to play an effective role in their local, national and global communities. By critically examining issues related to Democracy, Identity and Diversity, Social Justice and Human Rights from a differing range of perspectives, students learn to form their own opinion, to speak out and take action on issues that are important to them.
