Personal, Social, Health & Economic (PSHE)

Our PSHE department aims to equip pupils with the knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies required to live a healthy and safe lifestyle. The curriculum is designed to contribute to pupils’ personal development by helping them build their confidence, resilience and self-esteem, and to identify and manage risks and make informed choices while understanding what influences their decisions. Our curriculum enables pupils to recognise, accept and shape their identities, to understand and accommodate difference and change, to manage emotions and to communicate constructively in a variety of settings. It also contributes to developing an understanding of themselves, empathy and the ability to work with others will help pupils to form and maintain good relationships, develop the essential skills for future employability and better enjoy and manage their lives.

The overarching aim for PSHE education within Stocksbridge is to provide pupils with:

  1. accurate and relevant knowledge
  2. opportunities to turn that knowledge into personal understanding
  3. opportunities to explore, clarify and if necessary challenge, their own and others’ values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities
  4. the skills, language and strategies they need in order to live healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced lives.
