Religious, Personal, Social and Emotional Health Education (R.P.S.H.E) provides students with the knowledge to understand and make informed decisions in order to live a safe, healthy and well-balanced life.
It is important and necessary for students to learn about the different issues which arise and become a barrier to healthy physical, emotional and academic development. P.S.H.E provides students an opportunity to work on their intra-personal skills (e.g. setting personal goals), and inter-personal skills (e.g. active listening and empathy) whilst developing resilience, tolerance, respect and curiosity. This is achieved through inspiring lessons which encourage debate, team-work and reflection in addition to regular guest speakers.
R.P.SH.E lessons cover a broad range of topics which include:
Physical health & wellbeing - healthy eating & misuse of drugs and alcohol
Emotions and signs of poor mental health
Positive and healthy relationships
Discrimination and bullying
