PSHE lessons are intended to engage students through high quality, evidence-based and age-appropriate teaching. PSHE lessons help prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life and promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of students, at school and in society.
PSHE lessons help students to identify their personal qualities, attitudes, skills, attributes and achievements and what influences these. To explore their attitudes, values and beliefs about them and develop the skills, language and strategies needed to manage any issues they encounter in their lives. Lessons help students to apply academic skills such as critical thinking and resilience, to their approach to the study of PSHE.
