Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship & Economic Education (PSHCEE)
PSHCEE at Queen Mary’s High School is taught as a standalone subject. The students receive one to two hours per fortnight throughout Key Stage 3 & 4.
The aims of PSHCEE:
- 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.
The PSHCEE programme is broken down into three key components: personal wellbeing, economic wellbeing and Citizenship. Throughout Key Stage 3 & 4 students have the opportunity to investigate the key concepts in PSHCEE and develop the essential skills and processes as part of the 3 key components.
Throughout the course students explore issues which affect and are relevant to their lives.
