Welcome to PSHE & Careers
PSHCE (Personal, social, health and citizenship education)
Our ambition is for all of our students to be resilient, independent thinkers who can express their ideas, opinions and thoughts clearly, purposefully and with meaning. They will take opportunities to develop their knowledge of the world, what is right and how to be a good citizen and member of the community. They will be prepared for their own futures both in terms of careers and independent living to lead healthy and successful lives. They will understand the importance of what is needed to maintain healthy relationships and know where to seek help should they need it.
Our core values, hard work and kindness, equip our students with the depth of character, resilience and independence required to tackle problems and pursue happy, successful and fulfilled lives.
As students of PSHCE we work hard
We aim to expand our knowledge and understanding of different topics which will help use to become good citizens, stay safe and lead fulfilled lives. We are courageous and determined to speak out against injustice and build on our ability for resilience through mistakes and setbacks.
As teachers of PSHCE we work hard
We cultivate safe learning environments where pupils feel that they can talk freely and ask questions about important topics to prepare them for challenges and life after school. We aim our lessons to be inclusive of all children so that they feel that they are reflected within the curriculum. We provide information on where to find help, should the need arise and make sure pupils understand their rights and when a situation is illegal. We empower pupils to find their voice and stand up for themselves if they feel threatened or uncomfortable at any time.
As students of PSHCE we are kind
We are growing up together, we explore together, discuss ideas together, and value each other’s opinions and interpretations. We are empathetic and respectful young people who appreciate the diversity of our community. We treat our peers with respect and are tolerant of their beliefs, race, gender, sexual orientation and do not discriminate against others.
As teachers of PSHCE we are kind
We are role models for our students by showing compassion, kindness and understanding. We enjoy the privilege of sharing their journeys across the years, developing their knowledge, empowering them to grow into successful, confident and resilient adults.
