PSHE

Time Allocation
Students study PSHE for 25 hours a year. It is taught as a floating lesson with the normal timetable suspended for the whole school for a different period each week. 

Grouping
PSHE takes place in form groups and occasionally whole year groups.

Course Content

The topics addressed are outlined below, but additional time is set aside to address topical issues as required. Where topics are revisited, knowledge and understanding is developed to an age-appropriate level. In addition to PSHE lessons, Anti-bullying and Wellbeing is addressed both in form time and during national focus weeks.
