PSHCE


All pupils have one period of PSHCE  once a week.

Citizenship encourages pupils to participate fully in their school and local community.

PSHCE is taught in tutor groups and as such gives pupils the opportunity to develop relationships within their class. It also gives pupils the opportunity to share their achievements and ways in which they have contributed to their tutor group, House and School.  They will also keep a record their PSHCE achievements at the end of each module.
