PSHE Education

‘PSHE is the subject that prepares children for the rest of their lives yet it’s often cut from the timetable to make space for other subjects.’

Julie Peters, Girl Guiding Young Advocate

Our Personal, Social, Health and Economic Leader is Christine Stewart.

PSHE teaches our pupils the skills and knowledge needed to develop fully as individuals and as members of families and social and economic communities.  Through these lessons pupils learn how to become responsible for the health of their bodies, minds and relationships.


This aligns with the S, H, D and W of our curriculum intentions (see Curriculum page).
