Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) aims to enrich pupils’ understanding of drugs, alcohol and tobacco; emotional health and wellbeing; nutrition and physical activity; personal finance; safety; sex and relationship education; Work Related Learning and enterprise.

Citizenship and FBV aims to develop student understanding of the modern British democratic system and their roles and responsibilities within society.


The PSHE, citizenship and Careers curricula are delivered through the following methods:

  • Weekly PSHE lessons during form time
  • Whole school enrichment days
  • Workshops and events in school
  • Within other subjects, particularly within Science, RE, PE, Drama, Geography,  History and IT.

We work extensively with external services including guest speakers and professional health practitioners, voluntary workers and the Metropolitan Police.

PSHE and citizenship are assessed using a variety of different methods with progress recorded and reported to parents.  We value our pupils feedback so that we can improve and amend the way in which these areas are delivered.
