Welcome to the PSHE department


The personal and social development of our students is very important to us at The Bay CE School. We challenge every student to strive for the highest standards, not only academically, but also in their personal and social development.

In our Personal, Social, Health Education lesson, our students are provided with many opportunities to develop essential skills, knowledge and understanding, and to address attitudes and values, all of which are necessary to help students make sense of their life experiences and feel confident and informed now and in the future.

Our objectives are such that each student is encouraged:

  • To develop self-esteem, confidence, independence and responsibility and to make the most of their abilities;
  • To play an active role as future citizens and members of society;
  • To develop a healthy lifestyle and keep themselves and others safe;
  • To develop effective and fulfilling relationships and learn to respect the difference between people.

All students follow a course in PSHE delivered by teaching staff and specialists and there are many other opportunities where students are able to develop and practise their personal and social skills. These include:

  • Informal times – before and after school, breaks and lunchtimes
  • During assemblies;
  • Being aware of the decision making processes through Student Voice;
  • Curriculum Enrichment opportunities, theme days, outside speakers;
  • Student Leadership, House reps and Captains, helping on reception duty;
  • Extra-curricular activities like the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and sports clubs.

We are committed to Personal, Social, Health Education because we know that the way students feel about themselves can have a significant impact upon their achievement, and by engaging our students in learning vital life skills we will equip them for their future away from The Bay CE School.
