PSHE is personal, social, health and economic education and is an important and necessary part of all students’ education. It is a non-statutory subject and is flexible to meet the needs of students. A key aspect is to equip students with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.
At Key Stage 4 students will take a course dependent upon their academic ability.
If a student is Entry Level he or she will continue with the WJEC Entry Pathways system to aim for either an Award or Certificate.
GCSE level students will follow the AQA 5800 Course in Personal and Social Education at either Level 1 or Level 2. Level 2 is equivalent to a higher level GCSE 9-4 (old A-C grades) and Level 1 is equivalent to 3-1 (old GCSE grades D-G).
