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 some topics must be delivered again but differentiated to engage learning.
We aim 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.
