Key Stage 3 & 4 PSHEE/Citizenship/Career

The programme has to be flexible in order to address current /unpredicted issues/affairs. ( e.g. Royal Weddings, The Summer Riots,  etc)

Pupils broaden their general knowledge & skills in preparation for adult life; they learn to discuss & debate, appreciating & respecting the views of their peers.

Appropriate DVDs / videos may be shown, (e.g. C.E.O.P. re Safety on Line, Teenage pregnancy, anti bullying  etc). Guest speakers enhance the programme. (e.g. Fire service, Sexual Health Nurse, Revision advisers).

Years 7-9 start their sessions by writing up recent events/concerns in their “Friday/PSHE Diaries”, & also answer quiz questions on topical news items – displayed daily on our News Wall.

Support book used –  John Foster “Your Life” series
