    PSHE

    This year sees the launch of Aldworth School’s brand new Personal Social Health Education (PSHE) programme, which is delivered by tutors during a dedicated period every Monday morning.  Through our programme we aim to ensure pupils develop the attributes, skills and knowledge they need to prepare for a successful future in both life and work, and to keep themselves healthy and safe.

    Grouped into three core themes: ‘health and wellbeing’, ‘relationships’ and ‘living in the wider world’, we want to develop pupils who are responsible, can demonstrate resilience and critical thinking, work effectively as part of a team, communicate confidently, and are able to recognise and manage risk.  Responding to the requests of pupils in an annual ‘Student Voice’ survey, this year we are teaching some modules which focus on the issues of mental health, stress and self-esteem.

    The Programme of study is as follows:
