Personal Social & Health Education
At Brannel School, students study PSHE through a series of immersion days throughout the year. The immersion days include: Citizenship, Learning to Learn, Information and Guidance and Personal, Social, Health and Economic education. Opportunities for all year groups are also provided through weekly tutor-led discussions and assemblies.
The PSHE sessions are delivered by both teachers and external agencies such as Brook, Dreadnoughts and the Youth Service. The course is designed to help students to deal with the difficult moral, social and health related issues that arise in their lives and in society.
PSHE covers all statutory and many non-statutory aspects of PSHE Education allowing for a broad and balanced curriculum that is suited to each year group. Topics covered range from Thinking skills, Careers, Crime, Sex and Relationship Education and Budgeting to Drugs Education and Healthy Lifestyles. PSHE helps to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding pupils need for the future to live, confident, healthy, independent lives as individuals, parents, workers and members of society.
At Brannel School we ensure that all our students learn the fundamental British values that underpin our community including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and religious beliefs.
