Personal, social and health education is designed to help children and young people grow and develop as individuals and as members of families and of social and economic communities.
Furthermore it makes a major contribution to schools' responsibilities to promote children and young people's wellbeing (Wellbeing is defined in the Children Act 2004 as the promotion of physical and mental health; emotional wellbeing; social and economic wellbeing; education, training and recreation; recognition of the contribution made by children to society; and protection from harm and neglect.)
Here at Brighton College the programme is taught using a series of 'drop-in' days. Whereby each year group has an afternoon of PSHE talks each term. Outside speakers are invited in to equip pupils with the knowledge, understanding and practical skills to live healthy, productive and responsible lives. Time is then dedicated during tutor group sessions to follow up the issues raised so that pupils have an opportunity to reflect upon and clarify their own values and attitudes.
For further information please don't hesitate to refer to the parents' gateway on the school's internet site or directly contact the Head of PSHE, James Dunn.
