Role Models and Catalysts for Change

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)

Personal and Social Education (PSE) is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Evidence shows that a well-delivered PSE programme has an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.


Our Programme of Study for PSE aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk management, team-working and critical thinking in the context of learning grouped into three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and careers education).
