Personal, Social, Health and Economic education
PSHE, Personal, Social, Health and Economic education is a comprehensive program of study delivered throughout the entire Channing community, starting in the Junior School through to 6th Form. It is taught by form tutors, school nurses, 6th form students and a range of expert guest speakers. Some topics covered include, road safety, internet safety, sex and relationships, drugs and alcohol awareness, nutrition, body confidence, economic well-being, mindfulness, bullying and mental health awareness.
Every year we celebrate ‘Healthy School’s Week’ with a range of activities and guest speakers for students and parents, which really helps to place health and well being at the centre of all that we do at Channing.
We look closely at the PSHE Association Guidelines when devising the curriculum and on their recommendation have recently added a range of new topics including, teenage relationship abuse, forced marriage, extremism and violence against women in line with the National Prevent Initiative.
