PSHE delivers a valuable programme of topics


Actively encouraging girls to think objectively, widen their general knowledge and become confident, balanced and informed members of the community.

The PSHE programme

A wide range of age appropriate topics are delivered through six 'drop down' days over the course of the academic year. The programme is flexible, designed to meet the needs of the girls in each year group, providing a varied and valuable programme of topics ranging from body image, self-esteem and resilience, to bullying, mental health and self-defence. Alongside this, the .b course in Mindfulness continues to be delivered by our own .b qualified teacher.

The following additional courses are also included:

Year I: Body and Mind I, Digital Literacy, Learning to Learn I, Life Skills: Personal Impact, What is Cancer?

Year II: Body and Mind II, Digital Literacy, Learning to Learn II, Life Skills: Personal Impact, Talking Jobs, What is Cancer?, the Wider World.

Year III: Six 'drop down' days are held over the course of the academic year which will include a ‘Real Challenge’ day and a Careers and Leadership day, as well as Digital Literacy, Growth Mindset, Study Skills, the Wider World and Emotional Health.

Year IV: Alcohol Awareness, Celebrating Difference, Digital Literacy, Money Skills.

Year V: Digital Literacy, Human Rights, the UK and its Politics.

Lower VI: Digital Literacy, 'Disrespect Nobody', Human Rights, Money Skills, Organ Donation.

Upper VI: Digital Literacy, 'Disrespect Nobody', Money Skills, Taking Action on Body Image and a series of talks by visiting speakers.

I've really enjoyed the PSHE 'drop down' days as we get to hear from different external speakers about a range of really interesting and relevant topics.
