Power to PSHE ahead of Anti-Bullying Week

Anti-Bullying week is coming up on the 13th – 17th of November and highlights what a crucial role PSHE as a subject plays in the curriculum.

PSHE is an essential subject and covers such important and challenging issues which young people face today as Social Science and PSHE specialist Teacher Kim Constable explains here. Kim explains that although this subject is not examined, it is still a statutory requirement which shows just how important the subject is. Sensitive topics, such a bullying, can be discussed and explored in a safe environment.

PSHE allows the subject to focus on students wellbeing instead of  focusing on preparations for examinations and results. It gives pupils the opportunity to enjoy their learning and discuss issues on a personal and wider scale.

Our PSHE programmes cover personal wellbeing, relationships and economic wellbeing in alignment with the PSHE curriculum for both primary and secondary schools. We achieve this through use of role-play, improvisation and unique drama exercises during our workshops to raise awareness and explore these topics with pupils. We create a safe and inclusive environment where students feel comfortable to address any issues or concerns they have and together learn more about how to stay safe and help others be safe too.
