Yesterday pupils were involved in a number of workshops provided by senior staff and external speakers covering topics including relationships, alcohol and emotional awareness, consequences of actions, sexual health, revision and more.
PSHCE (Personal Social Health and Citizenship Education) seeks to help pupils to develop the knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies required to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives. It encourages them to be enterprising and supports them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in achieving economic wellbeing.
The event provided opportunities for pupils to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future.
Thank you to guest speakers Tonian Lowe from the NHS, Vivienne Blackledge from Corner House, Amanda Brookfield from Enrichment Partnerships and Julia Baggs from Wilberforce Chambers.
