Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education (PSHE)
Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education is the cornerstone of all personal development. Our students receive one lesson a fortnight of specialist PSHE teaching, ensuring that all students are educated about the wider world and their place within it. We look at a variety of topics including health and well-being, bulling and cyberbullying, rights, responsibilities and community, culture, and cultural difference, RSHE (Relationship, Sex and Health Education) and Citizenship, all of which fall under our three main categories:
- Health and well-being
- Living in the wider world (economic wellbeing, careers, and the world of work)
The British Values of respect, tolerance and democracy are reinforced throughout all of these areas of study.
Elements of Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) are delivered to pupils in all year groups through PSHE lessons. If you would like to see greater detail about the topics covered, please do refer to the RSHE page of our website and our RSHE policy for a detailed overview.
Our aim as a department is to ensure that our students leave Cambourne Village College not just educated to a high standard academically, but also to a high standard personally. A student’s personal development is as important as their academic development.
At times during the year additional PSHE content may be delivered to pupils through one-off sessions and drop-down days. Information about these will be shared with parents in advance.
Assembly and tutor time themes
Pupils will have a weekly assembly delivered by their Head of Year or other member of specialist staff which ties in closely with the PSHE curriculum and covers important content to all pupils. This is in addition to content delivered by form tutors during tutor time. Themes will link to current PSHE content, issues which arise throughout the academic year, and national and international events such as anti-bullying week and Remembrance Day.
