PSHCEE Year 9

Aims:
  • Education for Citizenship aims to equip young people with the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in public life.
  • Personal wellbeing aims to help young people embrace change, feel positive about who they are and enjoy healthy, safe, responsible and fulfilled lives.
  • Education for economic wellbeing and financial capability aims to equip pupils with the knowledge, skills and attributes to make the most of changing opportunities in learning and work.
Content:
The PSHCEE programme is broken down into three key components: personal wellbeing, economic wellbeing and citizenship.  Throughout Key Stage 3 PSHCEE students will have the opportunity to develop the following essential skills and processes as part of these 3 components:
  • Personnel wellbeing: Critical reflection, decision making and managing risk, developing relationships and working with others.
  • Economic wellbeing: Self development, exploration, enterprise and financial capability.
  • Citizenship: Critical thinking, enquiry, advocacy, representation and taking informed and responsible action.
The key concepts outlined in the three main components of PSHCEE are delivered through the following topics:
  • My economic wellbeing (1) – Managing money
  • Me and my future (1) – GCSE options
  • Me and others (5) – Relationships
  • Identity and diversity (2) – Disability
Assessment:
Assessment occurs through a range of methods, including pupil self evaluation and assessment tasks contained within each unit of work.  Homework is issued once per fortnight and should take approximately 40 minutes.

Extra Curricular:
Personal health and well being is promoted by extracurricular sports.
The school offers a number of opportunities to become active and responsible citizens for example through Eco group, Fairtrade and School Council.
