At Channing we take great pride in the quality of our Pastoral Care. PSHE lessons are an essential part of this care and are designed to help pupils to become active citizens who can make healthy and informed choices.
Pupils in Years 7 to 11 have one lesson of PSHE per week with either their Form Tutor or Co-tutor. Pupils follow a programme that has been devised to meet the specific needs of our girls. PSHE is also a time for pupils and staff to establish solid relationships based on mutual understanding and respect for the views of others.
PSHE has undergone great changes in recent years. The content of lessons is influenced by the needs of pupils, the views of parents, the opinions of teachers and, of course, the recommendations of both local and national governments.
In line with the National Curriculum, our PSHE syllabus contains lessons on Citizenship, SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) Sex and Relationships Education, Drugs Education, Careers Education and Economic Wellbeing Education.
We are currently working with British Red Cross, Sightsavers, Traap (Teenage Rape Awareness), The Teenage Cancer Trust and Transport For London who will all give talks at Channing this year to help us achieve our aims.
Julie Casey came to Channing to talk to parents three years ago and gave a very informative and entertaining presentation about the perils of living with teenagers. The evening was such a success that I have invited her back, this time to talk about how parents can support their daughters both with their emotional and academic development.
Julie Casey is the Senior Director of The SEAL Consultancy. Before working as a specialist educational psychologist in the areas of Behaviour and Emotional Literacy, Julie spent sixteen years as a teacher, achieving the award of ‘Britain’s Best Teacher’. Julie works as a consultant to clients such as the BBC, local education authorities and a range of government organisations.
If you would like to attend this evening presentation, please let me know by emailing your intention to info(at)channinng.co.uk for the attention of P Gittins. The evening is for parents only and will be aimed at those with daughters in Years 5 to 11.

I am aware that internet safety is a growing concern and many parents feel that they don’t understand enough to keep their children safe on line.
This workshop will be led by Eyepat, a company who specialise in advising parents and teachers about internet safety. It has been designed to raise parents’ awareness of the 5 key aspects of internet safety as well as the risks associated with online gaming amongst young people.
The session will cover cyber-bullying, viewing of inappropriate web sites and images, use of mobiles for internet access, sexting, grooming, and identity theft.
If you would like to attend this evening presentation please let me know by emailing your intention to firstname.lastname@example.org for the attention of P Gittins. The talk is for all Channing and Fairseat parents.
Refreshments will be provided from 6.30pm for a 7pm start. We will aim to finish at 8.30pm with time for questions after.
