Personal, social, health and economic [PSHE] education is an important and necessary part of all pupils' education. PSHE is a non- statutory subject and can encompass many areas of study. Our PSHE education programme is used to equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk and the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions. The programme builds on the content of the National Curriculum and statutory guidance on drug education, financial education, sex and relationships education [SRE] and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.
