We believe that personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. Our approach to PSHE draws on good practice, and closely follows government guidelines on best practice.


PSHE is a non-statutory subject which we choose to teach because we think it is important, and we match our approach to our understanding of the needs of the pupils. We particularly ensure that we equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions, and meet the statutory government guidance for our taught age groups concerning: drug education, financial education, sex and relationship education (SRE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.
