Personal, Social, Health & Citizenship Education (PSHCE)


Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) Education has now been part of the National Curriculum for over 10 years, and is intended to support pupils’ learning and personal development.

The importance of PSHE education provision to children and young people?

PSHE education equips children and young people with knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive, fulfilled, capable and responsible lives. PSHE education encourages them to be enterprising and supports them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in managing their finances effectively.  It also enables children and young people to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes, and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future.

Each student at Kingsdale Foundation School follows a PSHE education programme which is delivered during weekly tutor sessions, with some topics being covered as part of the Citizenship programme of study.
