PSHE

During PSHE lessons, students will be taught Citizenship, Career Information and Guidance (CIAG), Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education on a rotational basis across all years.

Today’s young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young people need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way. This is the basis of the PSHE curriculum and we develop our program so that it is age and developmentally appropriate. We teach sensitively and inclusively, with respect to the backgrounds and beliefs of students and parents, while always with the aim of providing students with the knowledge they need of the law.

We are clear that parents and carers are the prime educators for children on many of these matters. Our aim is to compliment and reinforce this role and build on what pupils learn at home as an important part of delivering a good education. We want to help to foster pupil well-being and develop resilience and character that we know are fundamental to students being happy, successful and productive members of society. 
Below is the PSHE learning journey that students will take by year group. The content they cover falls under three headings:
  • Living in the Wider World
  • Relationships and Sex
  • Health and Well-being 
PSHE education is taught throughout the College in every year group and it is monitored and reviewed regularly by the staff and governing body. ​If you have any further questions or you would like more information, please contact Mrs Greaves at contactus@sirjonathannorth.org.uk
