Personal, social and health education encourages young people to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society and aims to develop in them the skills necessary for adult life and employment.

We encourage our pupils to play a role in the wider life of the school and in our community; in doing so we develop their sense of self-worth and self-belief. We teach them about rights and responsibilities and to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse, multi-cultural and multi- faith society.

We aim to enable our pupils to know and understand how to lead healthy and safe lives; and encourage them to make informed decisions relating to personal and social issues. There is a strong focus on showing respect and consideration for others.

We use a variety of learning strategies to explore issues relating to personal and social and health issues such as problem solving, investigations, simulation games and discussion work.

P.S.H.E. is part of the Arts, Humanities and R.E Faculty. The P.S.H.E. Department is made up of two members of staff:
Ms Julie Grimshaw
Mrs Farzana Ali
