Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education
The aim of PSHE is to give young people the information they need to help them develop healthy, nurturing relationships. It should enable them to know what a healthy relationship looks like and what makes a good friend, a good colleague and a successful marriage or other type of committed relationship. We cover a variety of topics around health and well-being, in particular mental health, emotional well being and how to manage risk, with a key focus on how to know when and where to access support.
A large part of PSHE is preparing students to live in the wider world which includes developing learning and employability skills, understanding financial choices , as well as developing media literacy and digital resilience. Within PSHE we also cover all the statutory content for RSE (Relationship, Sex and Health education). Please click here for our RSHE Policy.
PSHE at Hall Green is delivered weekly in form time, through the academic curriculum, especially in science (focusing on the physical aspects of reproduction, as covered by the Science National Curriculum) and PE (focusing on aspects of health education), and also through dedicated PSHE sessions when the normal timetable is suspended.
Occasionally, the school will invite outside speakers to deliver some of our PSHE sessions.
