'Success for all, in all we do'


We strongly believe in the vital role PSHE has to play in supporting our pupils to grow and develop into confident, creative, resilient, kind, open-minded and engaged citizens.

PSHE stands for Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education. Our PSHE curriculum aims to provide pupils with a wide range of experiences and activities in order to equip them with the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to:
