PSHE is personal, social, health and economic education and is an important and necessary part of all students’ education. It is a non-statutory subject and is flexible to meet the needs of students. A key aspect is to equip students with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.
At Key Stage 4 students will take a course dependent upon their academic ability.
GCSE level students will follow the AQA 5800 Course in Personal and Social Education at either Level 1 or Level 2. Level 2 is equivalent to a higher level GCSE 9-4 (old A-C grades) and Level 1 is equivalent to 3-1 (old GCSE grades D-G). This course is also available at Entry Level 1,2 and 3 for students not able to study at GCSE level.
