Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE)

PSHEE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic education) is taught to all students from our school, through lessons delivered by the tutors, assemblies, dramas and intervention by external agencies. The subject is taught discretely and is at the heart of the curriculum, delivered period 5 every Friday.

We have created an extremely comprehensive program of study, aiming to promote independent, healthy, responsible and well-rounded members of society. We cover numerous topics over the 5 years, from settling into school and body changes to personal finance and our political systems. At Park School, we also include Citizenship, British Values and Careers Education as part of our PSHEE lessons. Age-appropriate  Relationships and Sex Education is delivered by the tutors as part of the program.

We encourage the pupils to explore these topics through discussions, videos and reflective questions. Some will make notes in their books, others will act in role plays. It is part of our vision that every lesson will be relevant to our pupils, whether in their teenage years or once they are on their own personal journey after they have left Park.
