Personal, Social, Health & Citizenship Education (PSHCE)
For students to be self-aware, healthy, safe and prepared for the challenges of life and to manage the opportunities and responsibilities they will face while growing up
Please take a look at our detailed Curriculum Map, or for a quick overview, our Learning Journey:
PSHCE at Roundwood Park is taught in a variety of ways which include dedicated PSHCE lessons, assemblies, specific events such as Diversity Week, National Careers Week, Mental Health Awareness Week and during tutor time.
PSHCE is a crucial element of a young person’s education and our curriculum aims to provide students with a sound understanding of their role as citizens now and in the future, the opportunity to consider wider societal and personal issues and the ability to develop critical thinking. By the end of KS4 students will have developed the knowledge and skills they need to manage their lives both then and in the future, and to take their place in society as responsible citizens. Students will be able to make informed decisions on a variety of challenges, including understanding the risks involved with the use of drugs & alcohol, keeping themselves safe online and managing their physical and mental wellbeing.
In line with the Government’s Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) Education Guidance, RPS has committed to developing students’ awareness in three key areas (core themes):
- Health & wellbeing
- Living in the wider world
