PSHEe (Physical, Social, Health and Economic Education)
PSHE is delivered through a range of sources. The majority of content if covered in CIAG lessons, which pupils receive once a week. CIAG also incorporates their careers education, details of which can be found on the CEIAG page. Students also receive some instruction from their form tutors and through assemblies. We use a range of resources including up to date documentaries, debate topics, stories from the media etc.
The aim of our PSHEe course if to promote personal development and encourage pupils to pursue excellence. The PSHEe scheme of learning and curriculum (both of which can be accessed here) are fully inclusive and promote pupils individuality. The curriculum takes into account aims set by both the Catholic Education Service and the Department for Education.
RSE (Relationships and Sex Education)
Relationships and Sex Education is now compulsory for all pupils and must be embedded into the curriculum. Many of the relevant topics are taught in CIAG lessons, however some topics are taught separately by our RSE coordinator Mrs Hoey.
For year 7, 8 and 9 these sessions are completed during their ‘RSE DAY’ which involves a series of exciting sessions delivered by Mrs Hoey and where possible outside agencies.
For year 10 and 11 they will receive a half term of RSE as part of their core PE rotations. These lessons are delivered by Mrs Hoey using resources provided by Ten Ten. Ten Ten are a company who specialise in resources for use within Catholic Education. All topics and content are taught in line with guidance from the Catholic Education Service and as with PSHEe they are fully inclusive.
If you have any queries relating to PSHEe or RSE please contact your child’s pastoral leader or Mrs Hoey.
