Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education helps students to develop the knowledge and skills to keep them healthy, safe and prepared for adult life.

This subject also helps students to connect and apply what they learn in all subjects to practical, real-life situations. It helps children to develop self-understanding, empathy, the ability to work with others and enjoy healthy and productive relationships.

The PSHE Parent/Carer Information Site contains lots of information, from setting parental controls on devices to information about bereavement, online safety and access to free workshops.
