Statement of intent- PSHCE

Young people of today are growing up in an increasingly complex and changing world, living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. While it is the responsibility of parents and carers to be the prime educators for many of the matters covered in the Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship, Education (PSHCE) curriculum. At Brooksbank, we aim to equip students with the knowledge and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. From making responsible decisions about drug use to succeeding in their first career, PSHCE helps students to manage many of the most critical opportunities and responsibilities they will face now and in the future.

PSHCE supports students to achieve their academic potential by developing the personal skills to help them navigate challenging circumstances. With this in mind, we have shaped the curriculum according to the framework of the statutory guidance and the needs of the students we have at the Brooksbank School; information which has been gathered from a variety of sources.

Please refer to the RSE policy for further information about the content covered and delivery of PSHCE in school. This can be accessed in the policy document section on the school website.
