Policy

We strive to be the best we can be in an inclusive, safe and supportive learning community; to nurture and equip pupils with positive attitudes so that they can become effective members of the wider community who demonstrate the values of integrity, respect and aspiration, enabling pupils to develop self-discipline and confidence.

General Information

Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic Education is the planned provision for pupils’ personal and social development. It helps to give young people the skills, knowledge and attitudes and values they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. It helps them to understand how they are developing personally and socially, and address many moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.

We aim to:

  • Develop personal and social skills essential to effective communication. Working with others, taking responsibility for oneself, learning and achievement, and management of health and wellbeing.
  • Acquire relevant information on a range of topics including emotional health and wellbeing, relationships, healthy eating and exercise, sexual health and substance misuse.
  • Clarify and develop attitudes and values that support self-esteem, are positive to health and wellbeing and encourage active participation.
