Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE)
PSHEE is a planned programme of study through which students start to build resilience and acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives. As part of a whole school approach, PSHEE develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
At St Albans High School for Girls, PSHEE lessons are timetabled for all girls in Years 7-10. Year 11 cover various aspects of PSHEE education during their tutor time along with two designated afternoons during the academic year.
We follow guidance from the National Curriculum programmes of study. Study is broadly split into three core areas ‘Relationships’, ‘Health and Wellbeing’ and ‘The Wider World’. Topics are presented using age appropriate language and resources.
Citizenship is delivered across the curriculum. Topics covered may include: charity, community, government, the EU and human rights. We want every pupil to make a positive contribution to her school and local community.
