PSHEE

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education

Girls from Years 7 to 11 have one 50 minute lesson a fortnight, these are discrete lessons delivered by a specialist PSHEE teacher.  The girls cover a range of relevant and interesting topics that help equip them for adult life.  The lessons are delivered in a sensitive and supporting manner to help the girls to develop their understanding and explore their own personal views and issues on a variety of topics.  It is delivered in a spiral curriculum where topics are revisited and understanding developed and deepened.  Topics such as healthy choices, with lessons around drugs, alcohol, legal highs, diet, and exercise for example.  The lessons are fun and engaging and look at issues of choice, risk, and consequence.  The girls also have lessons around study skills, looking at organisation, time management, revision strategies and techniques.  Topics such as Sexuality and Mental Health are also explored.  Relationship and Sex Education also feature in the PSHEE lessons and look at issues of consent, and contraception.  Some of the careers education is also delivered in these lessons - looking at decision making skills, and Year 9 options choices.  Internet safety also features in the scheme of work with lessons around bullying, sexting and grooming - these lessons link in with Internet Safety week. Finally lessons around budgeting and money management are a key aspect of PSHEE also.
