Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) is concerned with the emotional health, well-being and welfare of the students in our school. PSHE enables students to become effective learners and supports them as they move through adolescence to become independent young people. PSHE helps students to: acquire knowledge and understanding of themselves; develop skills for living; understand and manage emotions; become morally and socially responsible; to value themselves and respect others and take on a range of roles and relationships.
