Subject Vision and Intent

 

A growing body of research shows that pupils who are emotionally healthy do better at school. PSHCE education helps children and young people to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn, such as anxiety and unhealthy relationships. Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic (PSHCE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. When taught well, PSHCE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life. 

PSHCE education helps pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. From making responsible decisions about alcohol to succeeding in their first job, PSHCE education helps pupils to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up. Here at Hodge Hill Girls School, we pride ourselves on our PSHCE programme and aim to help students become well rounded citizens who understand how to not only stay safe but also thrive in the wider world. Each year we build on the previous year’s learning and adapt to the year group being taught, making sure all topics are age appropriate and consider community beliefs and ideas.

PSHCE is a non-examination subject. PSHCE is all about helping students to understand the world they live in and how to participate in this world. We look at British Values, community ideals and religious influences in all topics. PSHCE helps students to learn how to stay safe, adapt to ever changing situations and how to handle situations they may find themselves in as well as helping students in other lessons with links to science, maths, English, Citizenship and humanities. We are using PSHCE to help prepare our students for life outside of Hodge Hill Girls so they can strive to become good citizens.
