Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE)
Education for Social Responsibility underpins our ethos of looking after ourselves, each other and the environment. Through our curriculum and culture, we develop values, promote social and emotional well-being and take responsibility for preparing our girls for their future.
Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE) is delivered by everyone who works at our school through explicit and implicit lessons and activities. Assemblies based on PSHEE themes allow for whole-school discussion. We strive to teach our girls the skills and processes which will enable them to be happy and fulfilled individuals in a healthy, supportive environment. The curriculum actively promotes the fundamental British Values and incorporates the issues of social, moral, spiritual, cultural, mental and physical development.
When the Year 6 girls complete the 11+ examinations, increased emphasis is placed on PSHEE in helping girls prepare for life at their senior school and beyond.
When appropriate, specialist teachers and speakers are brought in from outside organisations. Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) is delivered by form tutors and the Headmistress at an age-appropriate level.
