PSHE stands for: Personal, Social, Health and Economic
PSHE is an integral subject within our students lives. It allows them to develop the knowledge and skills to manage their own life, both in the present and future. It can support students in understanding how to stay healthy, safe and prepared for life and work.
PSHE is a subject that can develop many skills and attributes within our students, to allow them to thrive in society, as a family member and as individuals. Developing skills such as teamwork, communication, and resilience.
PSHE can also contribute to a student’s academic potential.
Within our school, PSHE helps promote students spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development.
“A growing body of research shows that pupils who are emotionally healthy do better at school. PSHE education helps children and young people to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn, such as anxiety and unhealthy relationships”.

In an environment where parents welcome a partnership between home and school, we are much more able to support their children’s personal and social development, and help to deal with issues of increasing complexity such as those related to mental health and staying safe, both online and offline.

RSE stands for: Relationships and Sex Education
As of September 2021, the DfE require all schools to deliver the statutory subject of Relationships and Sex Education (RSE).
Our RSE subject is designed with the intention of providing our students with age-appropriate information, to enable them to make positive decisions to ensure healthy related behaviour is developed.
Within our RSE curriculum we cover themes such as: respectful relationships, families, including friendships, online and media, being safe, intimate and sexual relationships, including sexual health. In addition, we will also teach our students how to recognise and report abuse, such as emotional, physical and sexual.
It is important to empower our students with the correct knowledge, understanding, skills and confidence to ensure they thrive in a forever developing world.
