Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance

Personal, Social & Health Education

PSHE is an essential part of the curriculum and helps students cope with the decisions and challenges facing them as they approach adulthood.

Our main aim is to prepare and motivate our students for the choices affecting their future education, training, career and life as a responsible member of society.

The lessons will focus on four main areas;

  • Personal well being
  • Economic well being
  • Financial capability
  • Citizenship
The lessons help students become;

 

  • successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve
  • confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
  • responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.

 

PSE lessons will help to develop an understanding in the following areas:

 

  • Personal skills and qualities needed to make the most of talents.
  • How to learn in a way that suits the student improving success.
  • Developing opinions and respecting those of others
  • Respect for the differences between people.
  • Good relationships.
  • A healthy, safe lifestyle
  • Checking Progress, Target Setting and Action Planning to help progress in lessons and in personal life.
  • Careers Education.
  • Drugs Education.
  • Citizenship.
  • Personal and social development (eg friendships, relationships, bullying, co-operation).
  • Community and environmental issues.

 

All students partake in PSHE for 40 minutes each week with their form tutors. It is a lively and interactive subject in which students benefit from the experience and support of external agencies the school has developed links with including:

 

  • U-Explore
  • Connexions
  • Northamptonshire Enterprise Partnership
  • School Nurse Services
  • Local colleges and training providers
  • A range of local employers

The school links to many employers to enhance the opportunities available to students. As part of this we have worked closely with Northamptonshire Enterprise Partnership as part of the Enterprise Advisers pilot bringing a wealth of employers, opportunities and information in to the school.
