PSHE is covered in lessons in Key Stage 3, through Wider Learning Days and as part of Life Skills lessons in Key Stages 4 and 5.
The topics covered are vast and essentially prepare students for adulthood. Key elements are careers education, economic well being and financial capability, personal identity, healthy lifestyles, risk, sexual health, relationships and diversity. The lessons are taught by form tutors and the Pastoral team but it is recognised and expected that all teachers are qualified and expected to contribute to teaching PSHE at the Alice Smith School. For some topics, we engage external experts to provide the teaching teams with the support and additional resources, where appropriate.
