PSHE Mission Statement

The key intent of the Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE) curriculum is to help our students develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to be happy, safe and successful citizens.  PSHEE at Samuel Laycock School provides a broad, balanced and engaging curriculum which correlates closely with the school mission statement and RESPECT values.  We implement the curriculum under three key themes:

  • Health and Wellbeing – developing knowledge and understanding of what it means to have good health and wellbeing, development of strategies to manage and promote this.
  • Relationships – developing the skills needed to form and maintain positive, meaningful relationships, developing skills to know when and where to seek help and support if needed.
  • Living in the Wider World – developing knowledge and understanding of the everyday skills needed for life such as managing money, appreciating diversity, challenging stereotypes and staying safe online.

At Samuel Laycock School we embrace all opportunities to develop PSHEE skills among our young people throughout the school day and all staff play an active role in this.  Staff play a key role in adapting the planned curriculum to ensure teaching and learning is implemented effectively to meet the changing and emerging needs of different groups of students for maximum impact.

We measure the impact of our curriculum at Key Stage 3 through evidence in books and key milestones.  In Key Stage 4, students have the opportunity to work towards accreditation at Entry Level, Level 1 or Level 2, there will also be aspects of PSHEE that contribute to ASDAN portfolios.
