"When educating the mind of the youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts"

Dalai Lama

Personal, Social, Health and Economics education can be defined as a planned programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.

As part of a whole school approach, PSHE education develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.

The benefits to pupils of such an approach are numerous as PSHE education prepares them to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up in such rapidly changing and challenging times. It also helps them to connect and apply the knowledge and understanding they learn in all subjects to practical, real-life situations while helping them to feel safe and secure enough to fulfil their academic potential.

At Toot Hill School, PSHE lessons, Active Tutoring and Assemblies work together to support our students to think critically about topics within the following areas:

  • Keeping safe and happy
  • The world around me
  • What do I stand for?
  • My future
  • Health, wellbeing and relationships
  • My scholarship
