The aim of the PSHE curriculum is to develop in students the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy and well, to be safe and develop social skills, and to manage different types of relationships, in order to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.
Students are empowered to become informed and active citizens who know how democracy operates and how the UK is governed, are aware of their rights and responsibilities, are interested in volunteering and the charitable sector, and can manage their money effectively.
PSHE contributes to careers education, developing students’ knowledge and skills that will help them make informed, ambitious and appropriate choices at the end of each key stage. It supports them in making high quality applications for these destinations, developing their skills for the careers market of the future.
