Year 9 Curriculum - Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)
All students will have a one-hour lesson per fortnight.
This is non-examined, but a Behaviour and Effort score will be reported.
We follow a scheme of work called Jigsaw PSHE. This is a whole-school approach to PSHE, health and wellbeing. Jigsaw is a unique, spiral, progressive and effective scheme of work, aiming to prepare children/young people for life, heling them really know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.
There are 6 units of work that we look at in all years and these include:
- Being Me In My World
- Celebrating Difference
- Dreams and Goals
- Healthy Me
- Changing me
In Year 9 students will look at:
- Perceptions about intimate relationships
- Peer on peer abuse
- Abuse and coercion
- Protected characteristics
- Hate crime
- Personal strengths and SMART targets
- Mental health and well being
- Law and effects of alcohol and drugs
- Smoking and vaping
- Healthy relationships
- Contraception and sexual health
- Age of consent
