"PSHE has helped me because we discuss and work on real-life problems which I could and have gone through" - Year 7 Student
All students study Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) in years 7-11. At Aylesford School - Sports College, PSHE aims to equip students with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to live healthy, safe and responsible lives.
The programme of study aims to cover a range of relevant topics including safety, achievement, physical, mental and sexual health, wellbeing and values. The programme educates students on these topics as well as challenging prejudice and discrimination and encouraging students to reflect on their own relationships, contributions and attributes.
The PSHE programme aims to support the Every Child Matters outcomes (be healthy, be safe, positive contribution, economic wellbeing and enjoy and achieve) and specifically addresses these through each unit across the year.
PSHE teachers and external contributors develop student’s ability to manage their own lives and explore complex and sometimes conflicting values and attitudes. The overall aim of PSHE is to ensure our students are able to deal with situations and make informed choices now and in the future.
