At EDClass, we understand the importance of educating pupils about personal, social, health and economic education. This can provide them with the tools to make responsible and informed decisions in their life. We have developed a PSHE curriculum with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding to fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum.

The teaching and delivery of RSE & PSHE can help prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. This allows us to promote the spiritual, moral, social. Cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, to facilitate their reintegration back into school and their wider community. 

We are obligated to provide pupils with a high quality, suitable and age appropriate teaching of the subject to meet all of our learners’ needs.   Pupils arrive at different stages throughout the academic year so it is essential that some topics are delivered again but differentiated to engage learning.

Our aim is to equip our pupils with the knowledge, life skills and understanding to support them through their reintegration back into school and their community, and to avoid the dangers and consequences of their actions.

In our Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) section, our content, which can be delivered in numerous ways such as timetabled, individual or personalised learning pathways, includes:

  • A Healthy Diet for Teenagers
  • Alcohol and Drugs
  • Building Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem
  • Contacting the Emergency Services
  • Coping with Conflict
  • Diversity
  • Essential First Aid
  • Fire Safety
  • Mental Health and Well-Being
  • Puberty
  • Racism and the Law
  • Relationships
  • Understanding Emotions
