The aim of the PSHEE curriculum at EHS is to support students to develop life-long skills: educating, informing and advising them on a range of issues. We cultivate in students the critical thinking needed to make positive and deliberate life choices, while engaging meaningfully in society and developing the emotional resilience to tackle challenges that they are presented with. It is intended to support students in their development not just in the moment but across the rest of their lives.

Drawing on the PSHEE Association recommended topics, a spiral curriculum is used to ensure subject areas were revisited each year, in greater depth. All statutory topics as set by the government on RSE are covered. Broadly, the lessons are divided into the following topic areas:

Health and wellbeing: ensuring students are equipped to keep themselves healthy, both mentally and physically.
Relationships: aspects of healthy and unhealthy relationships are covered, including consent and harmful behaviours.
Living in the Wider World: this covers education and career pathways as well as skills needed for the workplace.

These three broad topic areas are further broken down into:

  • Mental health and wellbeing
  • Learner skills
  • Equality and diversity
  • Relationships
  • Physical health and wellbeing
  • Finances
  • Careers
  • Sex education
  • The digital world
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Staying safe
