PSHE & Citizenship

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) and Citizenship refers to all the planned learning opportunities that our school provides to promote personal, social and health development through the curriculum as a whole. This includes opportunities provided by the core and foundation subjects of the National Curriculum and other subjects, including:

  • Personal Social and Health Education Courses
  • Assemblies
  • Circle Time
  • Guidance and Support Systems
  • Outdoor Play Provision
  • Trips
  • Visits
  • Extra-Curricular Activities
  • The School Council
  • Special Projects and other events which enrich young people’s experiences.


Any such experiences should enable pupils to:

  • Explore the values and beliefs which influence individuals and their relationships with others and the wider world
  • Respond to their present lives and prepare for work and adult life
  • Emphasise practical activities, decision making and learning through experience and co-operation
  • Provide relevant ways in which skills may be developed
  • Develop community links

PSHE and citizenship is concerned with the qualities and attitudes, knowledge and understanding and abilities and skills in relation to oneself and others, social responsibilities and morality. It helps pupils to be considerate and enterprising, while preparing them for informed and active involvement in family, social, economic and civic life. It plays an important part in bringing relevance, breadth and balance to the curriculum, and has become an entitlement for all pupils.
