PSHE, RSE & SMSC
PERSONAL, SOCIAL AND HEALTH EDUCATION SPIRITUAL, MORAL, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT, RELIGIOUS EDUCATION AND RELATIONSHIPS AND SEX EDUCATION.
Pupils learn about diversity and respect for others in a range of contexts. They discuss issues like equality and difference maturely
Pupils learn about healthy relationships, respect for the cultures and beliefs of others, and issues such as discrimination
At James Hornsby our PSHE allows pupils from years 7-11 to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work.
Our programme of study allows students to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, teamwork and critical thinking in the context of three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education).
Our curriculum is balanced, broad and relevant to the students within the school.
We are working towards achieving the Excellence in Pupil Development Award from AwardPlace.
PSHE is taught across Personal Development and Character Education. Over the three terms your child will explore the following key topic areas:
- Health and Well-being in Character Education
- Living in the Wider World in Character Education
- Relationships and Sex Education in Personal Development
All of their lessons have been carefully planned in line with the PSHE association.
