Personal Social & Health Education
Sex education, relationships education (SRE), health education
PSHE at Royal Docks will give our young people the unstoppable confidence that they can achieve amazing things, teaching them to cope with the challenges that life brings and recognise their achievements – because they each have their own, unique potential to fulfil.
Personal, social, health, economic education (PSHE) is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge and attributes to become happy by keeping themselves healthy and safe and by preparing for life and work in modern Britain. Our PSHE curriculum has been devised to promote the wellbeing of all our pupils (wellbeing is defined in the Children Act 2004 as the promotion of physical and mental health; emotional wellbeing; social and economic wellbeing; education, training and recreation; recognition of the contribution made by children to society; and protection from harm and neglect).
Evidence has shown that PSHE has a profound impact on academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils. Employers want the character and resilience that a PSHE education provides. PSHE prepares you for an increasingly varied range of graduate career paths. Pupils of PSHE have the foundations to undertake undergraduate and master’s degrees in psychotherapy and counselling, medicine, youth work, criminology, social work and social policy, education studies, sociology and healthcare professions (arts therapy, midwifery, nursing, occupational therapy).
