PSHE lead - Lyz Collins
Personal, Social and Health Education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. It helps young people stay healthy and safe, while preparing them to make the most of life and work. PSHE education also helps pupils achieve their academic potential.
In addition to statutory relationships education, pupils will experience a comprehensive programme that covers economic wellbeing, careers and enterprise education, as well as education for personal safety, including assessing and managing risk.
We aim to be an outstanding school at the heart of our local community. We want to create a happy, safe, caring and inclusive learning environment where every child will become an independent learner who achieves their full potential. In partnership with families, we will help pupils to become responsible young people who are on a pathway to success.
