PSHE education is a school subject through which learners develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work.
PSHE will have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for learners, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
Our PSHE Curriculum aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team working and critical thinking in the context of three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education).
An effective PSHE programme can also tackle barriers to learning, raise aspirations, and improve the life chances of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged pupils.
PSHE at Honywood will give the learners the ability to embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life. Learners will build upon their knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships and to build their self-efficacy. Learners can also put this knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when facing risks, challenges and complex contexts. Everyone faces difficult situations in their lives. These subjects can support young people to develop resilience, to know how and when to ask for help, and to know where to access support.
