The PSHE (Personal Social & Health Education) and Citizenship Curriculum is fundamentally about educating the whole child.
PSHE education gives pupils the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.
PSHE is taught explicitly within Beliefs, Values and Citizenship (BVC) and also features implicitly across the school’s whole curriculum. It also features heavily in our tutorial programme with weekly themes, assemblies and a Thursday morning tutorial session led by Form Tutors.
We take pride in our schemes of work and in lessons being varied and interesting. BVC is led by Ms Roberts and PSHE across the school is led by Mrs Wagner.
All Year Groups will cover the following:
CORE THEME 1- Health and Wellbeing
CORE THEME 2- Relationships
CORE THEME 3- Living in the Wider World
A detailed overview of what these core themes cover is available here
An overview of the PSHE indicators covered in BVC is available here
An overview of PHSE across the curriculum **coming soon**

Health Education will be compulsory in all schools from September 2020 along with Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) in all secondary schools.
To lead independent, happy lives, children must develop their self-confidence. This involves taking responsibility for their own health and well-being. In this subject, children learn about these important life skills. They learn not only about their own rights, duties and responsibilities but also about the rights and responsibilities of others. Teaching in PSHE aims to help them respect and value the richness and diversity of our British society. PSHE at Teign School is not formally assessed.
