Personal, Social, and Health Education

Somerset Road Safety deliver a

road awareness course to Year 8.

In PSHE we aim to equip the pupils for the 21st century. PSHE education is the school subject through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future.

We aim to support the students’ physical and mental health and well being, develop their non- cognitive skills, and support safeguarding.

PSHE is delivered to every year 7 and 8 group for one hour a fortnight by a range of teachers, each bringing their own personal qualities and attributes to the subject. Our lessons include a variety of resources, video, quizzes, debates, internet – based enquiry, scenario cards and, wherever possible, we invite outside speakers into the classroom to work on particular facets of the scheme of learning.

Although statutory PSHE is still ‘just around the corner’, we cover a wide range of topics which are relevant to the pupils’ ages and experiences.

Below is our programme of study for the year 2018-2019. Due to the changing nature of children’s lives, this is never set in stone and can change from one term to the next.
