What we aim to achieve with students:

PSHCEE aims to provide pupils with the opportunity to develop key skills for life and ultimately succeed both in and out of school. Its key role is:

  • To encourage pupils to understand and embrace change, responsibility, and wellbeing.
  • To prepare pupils with the skills needed to play an understanding role in public life, communities and society.
  • To respect diversity, democracy, traditions, culture, the law and human rights.
  • To be enterprising and to develop a can do attitude.
  • To be able to manage money, recognise financial risk and reward.
  • To create a positive sense of self, and a healthy lifestyle.
  • To be able to understand different relationships and to be able to deal with pressure and emotions.

Staff List:

Various members of staff contribute to the PSHCEE programme, with the department being led by Miss M Staines.
