Personal, Social, Health, Economic Education (PSHEE) & Citizenship
PSHEE and Citizenship is a means of delivering a number of cross-curricular themes, under the national curriculum:
- Developing as a citizen
- Personal, Social, health and economic education
- Economic wellbeing
- Financial capability
- Careers education and guidance.
The Citizenship programme of study at KS3 and KS4 is designed to develop students’ social and moral responsibility, community involvement and political literacy, meeting the National Curriculum requirements.
The national curriculum stresses the importance of personal wellbeing in helping young people to embrace change, feel positive about who they are, and enjoy healthy, safe, responsible and fulfilled lives. Personal wellbeing also makes a major contribution to the promotion of personal development.
Economic Wellbeing & Financial Capability
Aims to equip students with the knowledge, skills and attributes to make the most of challenging opportunities in learning and work.
This takes place towards the end of Year 10, when students go out into the ‘world of work’. Students are involved in arranging their own placements. The school monitors students during their placements. All placements are rigorously checked for the relevant insurances and health and safety regulations.
