PSHE

PSHE Co-ordinator: Mr Lee Rooke

PSHE and Citizenship are integral parts of the school, taught in both dedicated lessons once per fortnight and included in each lesson as part of the Social, Moral, Cultural and Spiritual elements in each subject area. Students are encouraged to engage in critical thought about their own wellbeing and their role in society. PSHE lessons are based on the statutory Citizenship curriculum and the guidance provided by the PSHE Association. A spiral programme ensures learning is revisited, reinforced and extended in age- and stage-appropriate contexts. The PSHE programme builds on knowledge acquired at Key Stage 2 about healthy living, relationships and living in society.

In Key Stage 3, students learn about how the United Kingdom is governed and the role of law and justice in society; they consider the functions and uses of money; they think about how they can maintain physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing; they develop their understanding of the changes in relationships.

In Key Stage 4, students develop a deeper understanding of democracy and government; they think about the role of the United Kingdom in the wider world, as well as international issues and laws; they consider responsible finance; they learn about dealing with risk; they develop their understanding of the role of the media in life.

Our students have the opportunity to take part in many extra-curricular events organised as part of the PSHE programme including First Aid Training with St John’s Ambulance, Voting in the Lincolnshire Youth Parliament Elections, attending the Local Democracy Day, taking part in workshops organised by Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue and other volunteering events throughout the year.
