Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) 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, PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.
Currently, Howards Park Community School follows the PSHE association scheme of learning for pupils.
From September 2020 it is expected that as part of the PSHE curriculum, schools will be expected to deliver RSHE – Relationships, Sex and Health Education. Below is an article published by the Government that provides some information about RSHE.
Any new teaching and content regarding relationships and sex education will begin from the summer term 2021. Please keep an eye out in the weekly newsletter and other communications for further information.
