PSHE combines the study of healthy relationships and sex education, wellbeing, health, citizenship and economic education. The curriculum has been framed following the Statutory Healthy Relationships and Sex Education guidance. Students discuss issues in a way that promotes awareness of the consequences of different choices and lifestyles. Importantly we encourage curiosity about the world, ensuring that students are prepared to act respectfully in society.
