PSHE benefits students to develop knowledge, skills and attributes that they need to manage life's’ challenges, and equip them with the ability to make the most of every opportunity.
Evidence shows that PSHE can address teenage pregnancy, substance misuse, unhealthy eating, lack of physical activity, emotional health and help students to support themselves, each other and to know where and when to get further help.
Effective PSHE also tackles barriers to learning, raises aspirations and improves life chances for some of our most vulnerable and disadvantaged students by providing experience and networks for support.
PSHE supports an individual’s emotional wellbeing, academic attainment and prepares the for the world of work.
It aims to develop students’ knowledge, skills and attributes that they need to keep themselves happy, safe and prepared for life and work. This can include reliance, self esteem, risk management, teamwork and critical thinking. PSHE along with other areas of Personal Development and Curriculum Areas, aims to give students the opportunity to become their best future self (summarised below).
