Claremont High School Academy

PSHE Education

We provide Personal, Social, Health and Economic education to Key Stages 3 and 4, through a spiral programme that gradually expands and enriches key concepts, increases knowledge, deepens understanding, and rehearses and develops key skills through a thematic approach.

The key 3 areas covered are:

  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Relationships
  • Living in the Wider World 

PSHE education is central to the development of the young people at Claremont. The planned programme is designed to help them deal with the difficult moral, social and health-related issues that arise in their lives and in society. It also helps them to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to live confident, healthy, independent lives as individuals, parents, workers and members of society. In addition to this, the PSHE programme promotes fundamental British Values, which are taught implicitly in lessons and throughout all key stages. Please click here to access the PSHE Policy and RSE Policy.

The key concepts which underpin all the topics covered are:

  • Identity
  • Resilience
  • Managing Change
  • Power (within social contexts such as peer-pressure)
  • Rights, Responsibility and Consent
  • Diversity and Equality
  • Risk management
  • Health (mental, physical and emotional) and Balanced lifestyles
  • Relationships (including; friendships, romantic, familial)
  • Career (including academic choices, enterprise and economic understanding) 

Our PSHE education programme recognises that young people will bring prior learning and real life experiences to their learning. Our programme respects and builds on these, providing a programme that reflects both the universal and unique needs of our students. Please click here for an overview of our PSHE programme.

The school provides opportunities for young people to make real decisions about their lives, to take part in activities that stimulate adult choices, and where they can demonstrate their ability to take responsibility for their decisions.
