Personal, Social, Health & Economic (PSHE)
PSHE is delivered primarily in Form Time every Wednesday and is supplemented by a number of specialist assemblies, themed weeks and guest speakers throughout the year. Topics covered include:
- Online safety
- Drugs and alcohol education
- Emotional resilience
- Relationships and Sex education
Our PSHE provision is regularly reviewed to ensure it meets the needs of our pupils in an ever-changing world.
We are also pleased to offer termly talks for parents on a range of topics.
The Senior Teacher Pastoral and PSHE and the Director of Pastoral Care
The Senior Teacher Pastoral and PSHE works closely with Form Tutors to maintain oversight of the day-to-day pastoral work with pupils from Years 7-11, whilst also overseeing the implementation of our PSHE programme. Our Head of Sixth Form maintains pastoral oversight for Years 12 and 13, working closely with Sixth Form Form Tutors.
The Director of Pastoral Care is a member of our Senior Leadership Team and is our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). This means that any safeguarding concerns are reported straight to her. Should the Director of Pastoral Care be absent or unavailable, then our Deputy DSL is our Associate Head.
Should any concerns arise, parents are invited to make contact with their daughter’s’ Form Tutor in the first instance, but are most welcome to contact the Senior Teacher Pastoral and PSHE or the Director of Pastoral Care, should it be necessary.
