Personal, Cultural, Social, Health and Economic Education (PCSHE) is the title given to a broad area of the curriculum. In Years 7 & 8 students have one timetabled lesson each fortnight where topics are explored and discussed. This complements the work of the form tutor, the assembly programme and SMSC elements across the Academic Curriculum
In Years 9 and above the taught elements of PCSHE are delivered within our Extended Learning Days provision.
In the ever changing, diverse world in which we live, all students need to be equipped with the understanding, knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves safe and healthy, physically, mentally and socially. They need to be prepared for life and work, whilst developing the skills necessary to take an active role in their community and manage their lives effectively.
This is achieved through a programme of study which is designed to support our students in developing relevant and appropriate life skills, through lessons, assemblies, extended learning days, guest speakers, and visits, and through encouraging students’ full involvement in school life including the Magdalen diploma, sports teams, music clubs, drama productions, peer mentoring, bullying ambassadors and fund raising and so on
An overview of the PCSHE provision is mapped in each year group.
