PSHE & SMSC
PERSONAL, SOCIAL AND HEALTH EDUCATION SPIRITUAL, MORAL, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT
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.
Over the three terms your child will explore the following key topic areas:
- Health and Well-being
- Living in the Wider World
- Relationships and Sex Education
All of their lessons have been carefully planned in line with the PSHE association.
