Department Introduction:

The PSHE department delivers a broad and balanced curriculum which follows the PSHE association’s guidance of healthy and wellbeing, relationships, living in the wider world that emphasises on personal development. We invite opportunities for external providers and link learning to Citizenship.

 

In KS3, students have 1 lesson a week, with a focus to introduce and develop self-awareness and confidence, self-esteem and resilience, healthy independent routines, fulfilling relationships, respect diversity and enterprise skills.

 

In Year 10, students continue with this subject for 1 lesson a week, with a focus to develop and analyse self-awareness and confidence, self-esteem and resilience, health independent routines, fulfilling relationships, respect diversity and enterprise skills.

 

In Year 11, students continue with this subject for 1 lesson per fortnight, with a focus to analyse self-awareness and confidence, self-esteem and resilience, healthy independent routines, fulfilling relationships, respect diversity and enterprise skills.

 

In KS5, students have 1 lesson a fortnight, we develop positive behaviours and attitudes by evaluating the importance of relationships and boundaries, diversity and respect, and tolerance and empathy.

 

Outside of lessons, students are invited to get involved with enrichment activities which support the relationship and sex education curriculum. We have recently introduced a student voice team who actively raise awareness of important issues that students face in society.

 

As a school we aim to design the curriculum around the needs of our students through the support of the Pastoral team, staff members and parents while making sure we keep up to date with PSHE curriculum statutory updates.

Department Aims:

We aim to provide an education that prepares students for life's opportunities and challenges. What we teach in the classroom will help our students foster lifelong aspirations, goals, and values. We want every student to have an equal opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge they need to thrive now and in the future. We focus on self-awareness and personal growth and want every student in the WGHS community to feel safe, supported, and valued.
