PHSE/citizenship

Subject Leader: Ms E Danneau-Joyce

PSHE education acknowledges and addresses the changes that learners are experiencing, beginning with transition to secondary school, the challenges of adolescence and their increasing independence. It teaches the skills which will equip them for the opportunities and challenges of life.

Citizenship education develops pupils’ understanding of how the United Kingdom is governed and the rights and responsibilities of its citizens.

All teachers including the Senior Leadership Team deliver the programme during designated     PSHE and Citizenship days, as well as special sessions, projects and assemblies. Part of the curriculum is delivered through others subjects including Science, History, Design and technology, ICT, Religious Education & PE.
