Personal, Social, Health and Careers Education
PSHCE at Spalding High School brings together Personal, Social, Health and Careers Education. As a curriculum area it is designed to help give pupils the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to lead confident, safe, healthy, independent lives and become informed, active, responsible citizens.
At Spalding High School, this means all our pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of our school and local communities. In so doing, every pupil learns to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning. They reflect on their experiences and learn to understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that will prepare them for adulthood.
At Spalding High School we aim to give our pupils opportunities to:
• Take and share responsibility
• Feel positive about themselves
• Take part in discussions in a supportive atmosphere
• Make real choices and decisions about their own lifestyle
• Meet and talk to people
• Develop good personal relationships
• Consider social and moral dilemmas
• Recognise the diverse world we live in
• Find information and advice
• Prepare for change
• Develop effective organisational skills
• Engender a positive, self motivated attitude towards study
We do this because we believe in the fundamental value of these experiences. Our timetabled PHSCE lessons are usually delivered by the form tutor or a variety of outside agencies are used. The creation of our developmental scheme of work from Years 7-13 is based on progression of understanding and maturity.
Please note: the sessions may vary due to the availability of external speakers.
