Personal, Social and Health Education

During PSHE lessons, students learn from the counselor about their personal well being. Personal Well being helps young people embrace change, feel positive about who they are and enjoy healthy, safe, responsible and fulfilled lives. Through active learning opportunities, pupils recognize and manage risk, take increasing responsibility for themselves, their choices and behaviours and make positive contributions to their families, schools and communities. As pupils learn to recognize, develop and communicate their qualities, skills and attitudes, they build knowledge, confidence, and self-esteem and make the most of their abilities. As they explore similarities and differences between people and discuss social and moral dilemmas, they learn to deal with challenges and accommodate diversity in all its forms. Students identify and articulate feelings and emotions, learn to manage new or difficult situations positively and form and maintain effective relationships with a wide range of people.

The PSHE curriculum focuses on four areas: health and safety, communities, emotional wellbeing and self management.
