Personal, Social and Health Education
Personal, social and health education (PSHE) at The Coleshill School plays a fundamental role in our safeguarding first approach and in the preparation of our students for their lives in the wider world.
Our carefully designed PSHE curriculum gives students the knowledge and confidence to protect themselves and others, to influence others positively and to be excellent role models in the community.
The PSHE topics studied at The Coleshill School fit in to the following key areas
- Physical Health and Mental Wellbeing
- The Wider World
Each half term focuses on one of these themes and looks in detail at some of the prevalent issues within that area. Relationship education focuses on managing friendships, forming healthy relationships, and enjoying family life. As pupils progress into key stage four, we teach them about navigating intimate relationships. Physical health and mental wellbeing at how we take care of our body as well as our minds. Studying the wider world teaches pupils the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance. At key stage four, this also includes careers and finance. The coverage takes place in fortnightly PSHE lessons as well as within drop-down weeks scheduled throughout the school year.
