Curriculum Specification -
Years 10 & 11


Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education

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, helping them really know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.
